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.

À propos de nanopinion

  • nanopinion est un projet financé par la Communauté Européenne, rassemblant 17 partenaires de 11 pays qui a pour objectif de suivre l’opinion publique sur ce que nous attendons de l’innovation apportée par les nanotechnologies. Le projet s’adresse aux citoyens avec une attention particulière aux groupes difficiles à ciblées. Ce sont des personnes qui ne sont généralement pas consultées et ne donnent pas directement leur opinion sur les nanotechnologies.
  • Ledialogue est facilité en ligne et dans les ateliers de sensibilisation dans les 30 pays avec différents types de participation.
  • Afin de favoriser un débat informé, nous lançons également une campagne dans la presse et sur les médias sociaux et nous proposons un répertoire contenant plus de 150 ressources.
