The Southwest Center for Microsystems Education (SCME) offers professional development and educational materials to excite and engage secondary and post secondary students in the field of Microsystems (MEMS) technology. This is a fast growing, multidisciplinary field.
Microsystems products are found in all the gadgets we use today and require a high level of technical skills by the people who manufacture, design and integrate these devices. By engaging students in learning where these Microsystems are used, how they are made and why they should care, we, as educators, can get them to see the relevancy and importance in learning Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).
This group hosts some of the SCME educational content that is particularly relevant to the nanoHUB community:
