This article discusses our progress in the development of interactive Java applets to deliver nanotechnology concepts to high school and lower division college students. This work is part of an on going NSF-funded project- Interactive NanoVisualization in Science and Engineering Education (INVSEE) at Arizona State University. The focus of INVSEE is the creation of a comprehensive web site containing lesson modules, images, animations, off-line assignments, intearactive on-line activities, simulations etc. that would serve to shape the needs of 21st century educational needs in nanotecnology. The paper describes our most recent thrust to incorporate interactive applets that illustrate complex physical and biological phenomena and concepts that students can access independent of geographical location, ecomomic condition or cumbersome software/hardware requirements.
