Nanotechnology is the science of building and manipulating materials as small as a single molecule. Mechanical engineers brought nanotechnology to life using robots during Clemson's Nanorobot Day on November 14th, 2006. Students and math and science teachers from Edwards Middle School attended the event at the university's Smart Structures and Nanoelectromechanical Systems laboratory. The day featured lab experiments and deomonstrations, including reomte controlled robots that move balls as atoms or pull and push cylinders as nanotubes.
