The REU Science Communication Workshop is designed to enhance the science communication skills of undergraduate students participating in research programs like NSF's Research Experience for Undergraduates. This Guide provides program directors with step-by-step planning and implementation advice, hand-outs, media and print materials, evaluation tools, and sample workshop leader speaking scripts. Users are invited to contact the providers hub at firstname.lastname@example.org to join the network of university providers and to access customizable online evaluation and reporting tools. AN UPDATED VERSION OF THE GUIDE AND MATERIALS WILL BE POSTED SOON. IN THE MEANTIME, PLEASE CONTACT NANO@MOS.ORG FOR THE UPDATE.
- Nanometer-sized things are very small, and often behave differently than larger things do.
- Scientists and engineers have formed the interdisciplinary field of nanotechnology by investigating properties and manipulating matter at the nanoscale.
- Nanoscience, nanotechnology, and nanoengineering lead to new knowledge and innovations that weren't possible before.
- Nanotechnologies—and their costs, utility, risks, and benefits—are closely interconnected with society and with our values.
