This project provided a comprehensive view of the state of undergraduate nanoscience education development efforts for the National Science Foundation: Division of Undergraduate Education (DUE) . Data was gathered on current efforts in nanoscience undergraduate education by analyzing the results of two surveys, one for schools with developed curricula in undergraduate nanoscience education, and one for schools in the development phase. Recommendations were made regarding direction of focus for undergraduate education development efforts to the NSF-DUE.
