Water is essential for every function in living systems. Water is being impacted by multiple negative factors. True statements, and researchers are working to solve the issues with getting clean water to 8 billion people.

Nanotechnology concepts are being applied not only to detect toxins and measure the quality of water but also to purify polluted water and sources. The science and technology that is driving these developments is dependent upon multiple concepts from traditional physics and chemistry concepts. In this workshop, applications of nanotechnology for water sensing and purification will be explained and used as examples of how nanoscience concepts can be introduced into tradition high school and college level courses. Examples of activities and potential experiments will be covered.
