You can prepare for a career as a nanotechnologist by taking mathematics (geometry, trigonometry, and calculus) and science (biology, chemistry, and physics) classes and by joining science and math clubs. Take computer science courses to learn how to use databases, word-processing programs, and computer-aided design software. Shop classes will help you to develop your technical skills and hand-eye coordination, which you’ll need to be successful when you work in a laboratory. English and speech classes are important because nanotechnologists frequently write reports and communicate their findings to colleagues.
