This community is a place to share information on teaching nanoscale science and technology to undergraduate students. Resources on nanoHUB will be highlighted, and links provided to good material outside nanoHUB.
Within this group, community members can communicate with one another via email, the discussion board and blog. The discussion board may be a good place to talk about particular strategies, for example.
You can post notices for events on the group calendar and collaborate on projects with other members. You can also share items through the wiki pages. Within a wiki page, you can have text, upload files and images, and have links to material on the web. Wiki pages can be set up so that any group member can edit a page, or you can specify that only you as the page author can edit the page you create. Wiki pages may be a good way to share your nanoscience activity plans.
If you need assistance, send a message to Tanya Faltens through nanoHUB, or by direct email to firstname.lastname@example.org. I will from time to time move the information to this overview page.
Resources on nanoHUB for Undergraduates
Analysis of Reports of the National Science Foundation Nanotechnology Undergraduate Education in Engineering Program
By Taimur Amjad1, Jennifer Nielsen1, Lynette Osborne1, Shirley Eng1, Thomas Jarosz1
The Nanotechnology Undergraduate Education (NUE) Program was initiated as a component in the National Science Foundation (NSF) Nanoscale Science and Engineering (NSE) Program, which is part of the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI). The Division of Engineering Education and Centers (EEC) in the Directorate for Engineering (ENG) sought program evaluation services to facilitate a program-level understanding by addressing the following questions:
1. What were the outputs and outcomes resulting from NUE funding?
2. What departments, colleges have collaborated in these programs?
3. What was the impact of the program on undergraduate engineering education, as reported by the funded projects?
4. Have the program outcomes been disseminated throughout the academic community?
5. What was the level of K-12 outreach?
To address these questions, Manhattan Strategy Group (MSG), a DC-based management consultancy, analyzed all available projects that were funded from 2003 to 2011. This is the final analysis report that MSG submitted to NSF in September 2012.
