Nano 101 Intro to Nano slide presentations

Introduction to nanoscale science and technology slide presentations for educators.

DESCRIPTION

Several different versions of Introduction to Nano slide presentation professional development designed to help prepare educators to engage the public in the field of nanoscale science, engineering, and technology.

  • Nano 101 powerpoint presentation slides (NanoDays training version): Nano 101 introduces educators to NISE Net’s four big ideas related to nanoscale science, engineering, and technology ("nano"). Related NanoDays activities can be used with this overview presentation to help prepare educators to engage the public in the field of nanoscale science, engineering, and technology. Developed by Sciencenter, 2012.
  • Nano 101 for staff (Greta Zenner version):  A Powerpoint presentation with script and program guide that helps prepare staff and the public to discuss nanotechnology.; originally developed by Greta Zenner, University of Wisconsin, 2009.
  • Nano 101 for staff (Tim Miller version): A Powerpoint presentation with script that helps prepare staff and the public to discuss Nanotechnology; originally developed by Tim Miller, Museum of Science, 2010.
  • Intro to Nano stage (Tim Miller version): A Powerpoint public stage presentation with script; originally developed by Tim Miller, Museum of Science, 2010.
  • Macro Micro Nano powerpoint presentation slides (University of Wisconsin MRSEC): This slide presentation shows the importance of scale (macro vs. micro vs. nano) and surface features in materials science and nanotechnology. Slides focus on water, the lotus effect, hydrophobic surfaces, and hydrophilic surfaces.

OBJECTIVES

NANO CONTENT MAP

Nanometer-sized things are very small, and often behave differently than larger things do.

Scientists and engineers have formed the interdisciplinary field of nanotechnology by investigating properties and manipulating matter at the nanoscale.

Nanoscience, nanotechnology, and nanoengineering lead to new knowledge and innovations that weren't possible before.

Nanotechnologies—and their costs, utility, risks, and benefits—are closely interconnected with society and with our values.
