NanOpinion workshop in Tel-Aviv

Last week a nanOpinion workshop took place in Tel Aviv. Participants included language, Bible and math teachers; a psychologist, a designer and others friends of the nanOpinion national teacher coordinator. They gathered to talk about nanotechnology… and no, they do not usually have an interest in science. Nili Mozes Bloch from ORT’s R&D centre facilitated activities and games to monitor their positions and knowledge on nanotechnology.

Participants were first asked if they would use NT transparent sun cream. Initially people responded that they would use such a product if the price is comparable to others, but then someone asked if the NT particles would penetrate the skin. Suddenly the debate was not so obvious. A discussion ensued. In the end, Dr. Nira Shimoni-Eyal, ORT’s NT expert, explained that these creams had been found to be safe and more effective than sun creams currently on the market. Other products were also discussed. Additional topics were raised and discussed and each of the participants had the opportunity to give their opinions and ask questions.

At the end, participants found that they knew more than they thought about NT, and that they had a positive approach towards NT in general and with NT products.

About nanopinion

  • nanopinion es un proyecto financiado por la CE en el que participan 17 socios de 11 países con el objetivo de realizar un seguimiento de la opinión pública sobre qué esperamos de la innovación con nanotecnologías. El proyecto está dirigido a los ciudadanos, poniendo un énfasis especial en aquellos grupos a los que es difícil llegar, es decir, personas que no estan muy familiarizadas con las nanotecnologías y tampoco acostumbran a ofrecer su opinión sobre este campo de primera mano.
  • Diálogo: se facilita por Internet y en eventos de difusión en 30 países que presentan diferentes formatos de participación.
  • Para promover un debate social informado, también realizamos una intensa campaña de prensa y redes sociales y ofrecemos un repositorio con más de 150 recursos.
