Nanotechnology Resources for Teachers and Students
Here are some useful Web sites we've discovered that may help you as you
delve deeper into nanotechnology topics.
Education in Nanotechnology
UnderstandingNano offers lesson plans on three topics: Introduction to Nanotechnology, Nanotechnology in Medicine, and Environmental Nanotechnology.
Nano World A nice collection of videos and course material for
teaching K-12 students about nanotechnology. Prepared by the University
Center for Learning and Teaching in Nanoscale Science and Engineering
(NCLT) has the mission of
developing the next generation of leaders in Nanoscale Science and
Engineering education. Teachers should check out the courses and
workshops they make available.
Nanobiotechnology Center at Cornel University has some interesting
educational opportunities, including a nanotechnology workshop for
teachers and a month long summer internship for high school students.
facilitates the development of innovative Nano scale Science Education targeted for
grades preK-20, featuring resources to create Interactive Virtual Nano
Science Classrooms for Global access and Virtual Interactive Nano
Science Laboratories (nano-labs) for experiential learning. Visit their
K-12 Outreach, Education Links and Nano video sections for free
resources and solutions.
Nanorex is making available a
3-D modeling software that allows students to simulate nanoscale
structures. If you are a high school teacher or university professor you
may be able to use this software for free.
Nanotechnology Initiative Web site lists educational degree programs
Nanoscience Education, Workforce Training, and K-12 Resources
is a book that provides an overview of the nanoscience educational
resources available for teachers.
