Established in 1968, at the University of California, at Berkeley, in honor of Ernest O. Lawrence, the Lawrence Hall of Science provides an online site, called the Nanozon. At this site you can do a variety of activities such as solving nanopuz-zles, watching a nanovideo, make a nanometer ruler, and even ask Nanobrain a question such as how tall is a cupcake or how small is a molecule. http://nanozone.org/
