In this paper, we present how our community’s public school system and our college of engineering collaboratively developed and implemented a program on Nanotechnology for a group of forty 9-11 year olds on a completely self-sustaining basis.
Introduction to Nanotechnology— Implementation of a Cooperative Program for Gifted and Talented Elementary School Children
By Mark Budnik
In this paper, we present how our community’s public school system and our college of engineering collaboratively developed and implemented a program on Nanotechnology for a group of forty 9-11 year olds on a completely self-sustaining basis. The program’s objectives and outcomes are aligned with our state’s Core Science and Academic Standards. Modest student fees (US $30 per child) cover the training and salary for undergraduate students to serve as instructors, as well as the salary for the K-12 teachers/mentors to be present as additional support during the sessions. After completing the program, the children met over 90% of the objectives.
