Abstract

The effect of an educational video on the acceptance of nanotechnology was studied using an internet based system to collect data. Analysis includes comparison between majors, gender, college, and overall trends with the general acceptance and the acceptance of specific types of nanotechnology. As the knowledge of nanotechnology increased the general acceptance decreased even though acceptance within specific areas of nanotechnology increased.
