Nanotechnologies: potential benefits or a great danger?
To study the origin of nanotechnologies.To see the difference between normal and nanoproduct.To learn more about contribution of Perm scientists in nanotechnologies.To investigate if lyceum students know much about nano.
Steps from the Stone Age to the Epoch of Nanotechnology.
Nanotechnology is the study of phenomena and fine-tuning of materials at atomic, molecular and macromolecular scales, where properties differ significantly from those at a larger scale.
There are some main trends in nanotechnologies today: Making nano electronic schemes
Design & producing nanomachines
Manipulation of separate atoms & molecules and making microobjects out of them (tunnel microscope, disks, DVD)
Nanotechnologies in Russia The State Nanocommittee in Russia was set up in 2007.
Since 2008 it has been headed by Anatoliy Chyubais.

From What the US can learn from the UK A new report from the British government's Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution says "new governance arrangements are necessary" to deal with the profound implications of advanced nanotechnology, and warns that this "will take time, possiblly decades, to develop and implement and we hope the US and other countries will follow the UK. “ — Mike Treder, The UK Center for Responsible Nanotechnology
Vladimir Baldin ,the chief technologist of the Perm plant «Mashinostroitel», the head of the Perm group for the construction of the Large Hadron Collider.
Elena Lopatina, lyceum’s schoolleaver, a journalist of Arguments &Facts (Prikamie),in No.6/2009 interviewed the academition of RAN Vladimir Antsiferov(Perm TechnicalUniversity)- Where Can We Use NANO?
The delegation of ROSNANO, headed by Anatoliy Chyubais visited PERM (11- 12 March , 2009) and discussed the questions connected with the organization of the branch of ROSNANO in PERM.The leaders in NANO in Perm krai –Perm Technological Research Institute, ZAO”NOVOMET,” Perm Instrument Making Company.
Do you know what NANO is?
In what nanobranch would you like to invent something ?
Have nanotechnologies potential benefits ?
Nano‘s Pros To continue the revoluton in computer hardwareTo develop a new manufacturing technology in metallurgy, IT, medicine, security.
Cons of NANOMATERIALS Some nanomaterials proved to be toxic to human tissues and cells. Some nanomaterials can cause potential DNA mutations.
