NanoInk folds, and the future in nanotechology education is in doubt

NanoInk, an enterprising Skokie-based company in the growing nanotechnology field, shut down this past week after losing a major chunk of its funding.

While much could be speculated why the company folded, the impact will be felt on the number of high schools and universities that invested in its NanoProfessor curriculum program to train students in the fast-growing field.

The U.S. needs this type of corporate-education cooperation to keep it in step with the world. We hope some other company can pick up where the Skokie-based company stopped.

IEEE Spectrum offers a bit more on NanoInk’s demise.
