Seeing Nano apps and resources

SeeingNano, a consortium funded by the European Union (EU) has developed two mobile phone applications: the SeeingNano app and the NanoScopic Memory app, and group activities: the Memory, the Profiler and the Origami.

• SeeingNano App: The SeeingNano app uses augmented reality. To use it, simply download and print the SeeingNano Markers. Point your camera at the image and move your device forward; you can now dive to see the at the nanoscale on the surface of a car engine piston, in an LCD screen and observe self-organising peptides reparing a tooth.

European Union - Nanotechnologies: Principles, Applications, Implications and Hands-on Activities A compendium for educators

This publication has been developed within the context of the research developed by the European project NANOYOU, funded by the European Union’s seventh framework programme. It has been enriched by the authors with numerous and multifaceted inputs, reflections and insights on societal issues, also provided by the European project TimeforNano.

The outcomes from all these efforts have been integrated and edited into an overall and fully referenced book, showing how to address nanosciences and nanotechnologies concepts and applications.

NanoOpinion website

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.

Time for Nano

The Time for Nano project is an EU based consortium. The website contains information on the benefits and risks related to nanoscale research, engineering and technology and links to informal education products and activities.
