The Nanotech Teacher Summer Institutes were funded by a NSF grant to the UMass Center for Hierarchical Manufacturing and operated by the STEM Education Institute. They were offered for nine years starting in 2007. While some of the educational materials were adapted from older ones found on the web, many were developed from scratch. A few files are in PDF format, most are in PowerPoint or Word. This makes it easier for teachers to modify the materials to suit their needs.
