How nanotechnologies influence nature?

Laura Steponavičiūtė, Lithuania (Lietuva) Finalist, 16-18

Nano products and, more specifically, nanoparticles are being used more and more in our daily life. It is a very perspective science which leads humanity further. But there is no guaranty that it is not toxic for our health and environment. In the first step of my research I have started reading earlier investigations and from these articles I obtained the hypothesis, that nanoparticles could be toxic for human health and after getting into the environment could cause the destruction of man-made system and have a hazardous impact on nature.
