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.
Everyone loves NanoDays festivities, but how do you keep people excited about nano the rest of the year? Join us to discover the innovative ways your colleagues are introducing nano outside of NanoDays! We’ll learn how partners are incorporating nano into nature detective activities, take-home workbooks shared at public events such as minor league baseball games, and exciting flash mobs. Come and learn some new ways to present the smallest science!
This hour long classroom program introduces nano science and nanotechnology as a leading, cutting edge science with an emphasis on nano in nature, health, energy and the environment. The class includes a PowerPoint presentation, three minute video, nine self-guided activities set up as “stations” around the classroom along with a concluding, teacher facilitated class discussion. This program was created for the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry’s (OMSI) Outreach Unit.
