Level 1 Collect Nanocar Parts
Character runs around the crystal landscape collecting parts to build the nanocar.
•OC1: States of Matter
•OC3: Elements
•OC4: Substances
•OC17: Crystals
•OP 48 Static electricity

Level 2 The Lab and Nano Gallery
The character has to find and operate the Atomic Force Microscope. They can peruse the nanogallery to learn interesting nano-facts.

•OP4: Force

Level 3 Build the Nanocar with the AFM
This level simulates using the Atomic Force Microscope to build the Nanocar.
•OP4: Force
•OC3: Elements
•OC4: Substances

Level 4 Drive the Nanocar
The character drives the nanocar through the crystal landscape to find the scaling wormhole.
•OP4: Force
•OP5: Friction
•OP 48 Static electricity

Level 5 Repair the Quantum Processor
The character is on the surface of a scorched microprocessor. They have to repair the damage and locate the wormhole to escape form the nanoworld.

Quite; and also FANTASTICALLY FUN! I am working on increasing my time scores (suffer too many penalties). Also allows me to research the underlying science and also to move closer to understanding the pedagogical aims, intentions, and methodologies of the developers and educators.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at

Dr. András Paszternák, founder of Nanopaprika
