NISE Network Research - Nano Online: Tracking NISE Net’s Digital Footprint

The main goal of our project is to examine online discourses about the Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network (NISE Net) related work by tracking media coverage and discussions online. We are particularly interested in exploring how NISE Net and its products get mentioned in and help inform these online discussions. The findings will allow us to have better understandings of how science centers and museums communicate with their stakeholders and various publics using social media tools, how the public attends to

NSTA online workshop: Knowing Nano

This Web Seminar, developed in collaboration with the National Science Digital Library, took place on Wednesday, November 11, 2009 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Eastern time. Dr. Lisa Regalla, Science Editor for DragonflyTV provided participants with a greater understanding of nanoscale science by giving a brief history of how our understanding of nanotechnology has rapidly grown over time. Dr. Regalla cited several examples of nano-level phenomena found in nature that scientists have studied.

NACK Network Webinars (Recorded)

The NACK Network offers a live webinar, hosted by MATEC NetWorks, every month to engage and educate those of you that are interested in learning more about nanotechnology related topics. Topics include:
workforce development and careers
K-12 education outreach tools for community college programs

Feynman's Flowers citizen science project

Researchers at the London Centre for Nanotechnology (LCN) are asking members of the public to help unlock the secrets of magnetism at the molecular scale by taking part in a citizen science project. The project’s website invites volunteers from across the world to analyze microscope images of individual molecules, which have characteristic flower shapes. Anyone can take part, and only a few clicks of the computer mouse are required to collect valuable information.
