[Illinois] NanoSTRuCT K-12: Nanoscale Science and Technology Resources for Community Teaching in K-12

By Alexander Cerjanic1, Brittany Renee Weida1

Published on


NanoSTRuCT is a student-organized project to develop and refine activities for bringing nanoscale science to community classrooms. As a student-led project, students and trainees have begun to lay the foundation for an ongoing and sustainable project including planning, resource development, and grant-writing. Brittany Weida and Alex Cerjanic will present the upcoming NanoSTRuCT project to work with 3rd grade students from Booker T. Washington STEM Academy. This presentation and discussion will be your opportunity to see what is going on with outreach and how you can be involved in the upcoming project to not only engage in fun outreach activities, but participate in useful career-building activities such as project management and grant-writing.


Alex and Brittany are PhD students in the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
