Abstract: The Spitzer program to image the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) with all IRAC and MIPS bands is well underway. IRAC observations in particularly will allow, for the first time, to quantify the distribution and properties of very small dust grains and PAHs across the entire SMC, as well as to study their environmental dependence and preferences. In this paper we describe project goals and give a flavor of the 24μm observations by examining briefly the structure in one of the most oxygen-rich supernova remnants, E0102-7219.
