NanoSonic developed a free nanotechnology coloring book to provide teachers with a resource for helping young students better understand the world of nanotechnology (links below to the pdf files might take a minute to dowload as they are large files for higher quality printing). This coloring book, funded in part by NASA, contains pictures and text related to nanotechnology on about a US fifth grade science and math level. Most of the images appear as abstract art. Students can let their imaginations run wild because most images of the nano world are taken with an electron microscope in black-and-white; researchers then apply their own colors to make them interesting and show special features. The coloring book and answers sheets are available in English and French so far (pdfs below).
Some of the images in the coloring book are based on Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) photographs. Other images are from around the world. All images are identified with a credit line. If applicable, each image includes an approximate measure in nanometers, for reference, as well as a question related to grade level science and math.
