SmallTalk is a podcast series chatting about nanotechnology with leading scientists, thinkers, artists, writers, and visionaries, and look at quirky nanoscience stories in the news. Dr. Stephanie Chasteen, of the Exploratorium’s Teacher Institute, hosted this series in 2007. Podcase Episodes: • Nature’s Playing Field: Nanotechnology and Medicine Dr. Tejal Desai, UCSF and Dr. Thomas Murray, Hastings Center Running Time: 00:30:48 • Nanotechnology’s Role in Making Cheap Solar Power
After an introductory PowerPoint on nanotechnology students are given a chance in groups to explore consumer products through an information sheet provided over available consumer products. After learning about products students can create a presentation for a particular product; test their product; or research a career in nanotechnology.
Held in 2013, this online brown-bag conversation provides examples of real nano products so you can incorporate them in your current demonstrations and visitor conversations. It may even inspire ideas for a new program or demonstration! Presented by: Frank Kusiak of the Lawrence Hall of Science For more information, and for a link to the recording, please see the Resources section of this page.
“Nanotech and Consumer Products” is a public presentation that introduces audiences to the growing role of nanotechnology in making consumer products, and encourages them to consider the potential environmental and health risks.
The Project on Emerging Nanotechnology is a partnership between the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and the Pew Charitable Trusts. These interactive inventories provide a range of resources including information on consumer products that contain nanotechnology and research into the environmental, medical, and agricultural implications of nanotechnology and society.
