Initially developed by the New York Hall of Science to establish a partnership with a local Boys and Girls Club, this four-week After School Framework designed for children between the ages of 8 to 12 highlights NISE Net activities, demos and programs and provides the children with a basic understanding and appreciation for nanoscale science concepts.
This is a recording of a NISE Network online brown-bag conversation held in 2013. This is a conversation about incorporating nano into your programming for school groups. It covers best practices and provides tips for designing single short interaction modules that work well on field trips and afterschool programs.
Presented by: Lizzie Hager-Barnard of the Lawrence Hall of Science, Jamie Bonnett and Alison Luk of the KidsQuest Children's Museum, Kevin Dilley of the Sciencenter, and Dawn Kirchner of the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery
This program describes a weeklong summer camp for high school students. The camp does not assume any previous knowledge of the field and thus is open to students from all backgrounds. It is hands‐on; application based and also gives a broad overview to nanoscience/nanotechnology as a field with many career opportunities. Students are able to gain a comprehensive understanding through activities that introduce them to the unique
