In November 1997 the National Physical Laboratory launched NanoLands in the virtual world of Second Life – a place where nano science and technology communities come together to exchange ideas and knowledge. NanoLands is part of NPL’s Nanotechnology Island, which offers regular events and opportunities for people to attend presentations, meet, network and influence others in envisioning and defining the future of Nanotechnology.
About Nanotechnology Island
Located at the heart of the multi-disciplinary archipelago called the SciLands, Nanotechnology Island is the nanotechnology hub of Second Life. With its interactive laboratories, exhibits and multimedia resources, the island offers an exciting virtual learning experience for its visitors.
The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) is the UK’s National Measurement Institute and is a world-leading centre of excellence in developing and applying the most accurate measurement standards, science and technology.
