Description
NanOpinion has developed an educational program in collaboration with scientists and teachers, which has been carried out in parallel to the European Consultation on nanotechnologies. The project brings together 17 partners from 11 countries with the aim of monitoring public opinion on what we hope from innovation with nanotechnologies. The website offers both modules educational resources easy to implement in the science curriculum at secondary school level for all teachers and educators interested in teaching nanotechnologies. It includes resources such as: videos, hands-on and virtual experiments and Moodle courses. In addition, a training kit for teachers with guidelines, presentations and background materials has been developed to provide information on how the NanOpinion tools can be easily integrated in the classroom. All these tools have been added to a multimedia repository which also includes resources from other EC funded nanotechnology projects.
