out of 5 stars
21 Jun 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Nicholas Vargo
This animation was created as part of the Children's Museum Nanotechnology Exhibit to give the viewer an idea of what objects look like at the nano-level. The molecules range from something as small as caffeine to major proteins and viruses.Nicholas Vargo created this kiosk presentation as an...
A profile of a Nano EPICS High School - Agawam High School
10 May 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Tamecia Raishaun Jones
This is a short profile of an EPICS High School that has found a way to integrate nano into its curriculum. The profile describes how the teacher used her specialized background in marine biology to create a plan for nano project in a marine biology classroom. At the time, this...
Analysis of Reports of the National Science Foundation (NSF) Nanotechnology Undergraduate Education (NUE) in Engineering Program
23 Apr 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Taimur Amjad, Jennifer Nielsen, Lynette Osborne, Shirley Eng, Thomas Jarosz
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)...
Are Simulation Tools Developed and Used by Experts Appropriate Experimentation Tools for Educational Contexts?
08 Apr 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Alejandra J. Magana, Sean Brophy,
Simulations and visualizations can lead to significant improvements in students'conceptual understanding. This increased understanding may be due to the formation of expert-like dynamic mental models. Laboratory simulations have been used in educational contexts forinquiry learning by allowing...

Building Capacity for Nano Education and Outreach through Partnerships with Science Museums: Overview and Case Study
31 Mar 2009 | | Contributor(s):: carol lynn alpert, National Center for Learning & Teaching in Nanosca
This session will present the background and theory behind these collaborations and activities, provide examples, and address evaluative aspects. We will also touch briefly on a range of other examples of nanoscale research center – informal science education institutional collaborations, now...
Characterizing and scaffolding students' conceptions of size and scale
29 Dec 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Alejandra J. Magana
Scale concepts transcend disciplinary boundaries of science, mathematics, engineering, and technology because they are essential for performing explanations, theory generation, observation, and activities associated with design. Current research related to size and scale has identified several...

Creating Research Links between Science at the Nanoscale and Science Education
28 Feb 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Nora H. Sabelli
This talk will address what is needed to reduce the gap between current science education and science education that incorporates the ideas in current nanoscience. The ability to manipulate matter at increasingly smaller scales of distance and time has blurred the boundaries between disciplines....
DragonflyTV Nano – Using the Power of Television to Introduce Middle School Children to Nanotechnology
15 Jan 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Richard Hudson, Joan Freese, Angie Prindle, Lisa Regalla
DragonflyTV is a PBS science series for children, broadcast nationwide and on the internet. DragonflyTV models authentic science inquiry through its unique approach: In each episode, ordinary kids conduct their own inquiry-based investigations, modeling the inquiry process and communicating the...
Educating by Computer Animations One Method Proposed to Control Motion at the Nanoscale: How to Roll
15 Aug 2004 | | Contributor(s):: Manuel Emeric
A student oriented approach for teaching was used to develop an explanation about the method to control motion at the nanoscale. The approach is focused on teaching all kind of people, no matter its previous knowledge about science.
Educational Outreach in Nanotechnology
15 Aug 2004 | | Contributor(s):: Charles David Evans
In order to bridge the gap between the rapidly expanding field of nanotechnology and the general public, the LEGO Scanning Probe Microscope Team (LSPM) developed tutorials to bring nanotechnology to the masses.
Electronics From the Bottom Up: a view of conductance
17 Aug 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta
Resistance is one of the first concepts an electrical engineer learns, but things get interesting at the nanoscale. Experimentalists have found that no matter how short the resistor is, its resistance cannot drop below a fundamental lower limit. They also found that resistance increases in...
Electronics from the Bottom Up: an educational initiative on 21st century electronics
17 Aug 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom, Supriyo Datta, Muhammad A. Alam
In the 1960’s, a group of leaders from industry and academia, recognized that the age of vacuum tubes was ending and that engineers would have to be educated differently if they were to realize the opportunities that the new field of microelectronics presented. The Semiconductor Electronics...
Electronics From the Bottom Up: top-down/bottom-up views of length
17 Aug 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Muhammad A. Alam
When devices get small stochastic effects become important. Random dopant effects lead to uncertainties in a MOSFET’s threshold voltage and gate oxides breakdown is a random process. Even a concept as simple as “channel length” becomes uncertain. This short (20 min) talk, a footnote to the...
Embedding science and technology education into students' lifestyles and technology choices
06 Dec 2005 | | Contributor(s):: Krishna Madhavan
Learning experiences of the future will be multi-sensory, engage technologies and significant computational power continuously and invisibly, and will be completely engaging. The emergence of highly cross-disciplinary fields like nanoscale science and technology, bioinformatics, and...
