The International NanoScience Community - TINC launched "Nanotechnology at Home 2010" a competition for secondary school students around the world. The aim of the competition was to find out what high school students think about nanotechnology, and the new products created using nanosciences. An international jury from the members of The International NanoScience Community has been assembled to judge all applications entered into the competition.

About the TINC:
The heat is on for an online social networking community for nanoscientists. The Internet Nanoscience Community, TINC, was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student. It now provides a rich menu of communication tools for the international community of scientists working in the growing field of nanoscience and nanotechnology and recently passed the 4000 members mark.
The virtual nano community is fully equipped with all the functions one expects from a modern online networking site: personal chat, a scientific forum, more than 80 thematic groups, including microscopy, nanomedicine, and even a discussion forum on safety and toxicity. TINC is also a media partner for more than 50 nano conferences on ifferent topics in 2009 and 2010.
The Internet Nanoscience Community has pulled together a community with more than 4000 members, researchers, students, industrial partners from Europe, India, the USA, and 50 other countries. TINC is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.
