$1.1 million to improve nanotechnology education in schools

The Nanoscale Science and Engineering Education is part of the National Science Foundation’s comprehensive effort to enhance nanoscale science and engineering education. Its goals are to form strong partnerships between researchers in science and engineering and those in science education; to develop effective strategies and interventions for integrating nanoscale science and engineering, which will inform other emerging areas of science and engineering, into formal education in grades 7-16; and to increase public awareness of advances in nanoscale research and technology and their impact on society. Developing instructional materials and courses for adoption and implementation in grade 7-16 classrooms is one of four eligible activities.
