Nanotechnologies: Where should they take us? Have your say

Education materials

NanOpinion has developed an educational programme in collaboration with scientists and teachers, which has been carried out in parallel to the European Consultation on nanotechnologies.

The programme offers both modules educational resources easy to implement in the science curriculum at secondary school level for all teachers and educators interested in teaching nanotechnologies. It includes resources such as: videos, hands-on and virtual experiments and Moodle courses. In addition, a training kit for teachers with guidelines, presentations and background materials has been developed to provide information on how the NANOPINION tools can be easily integrated in the classroom. All these tools have been added to a multimedia repository which also includes resources from other EC funded nanotechnology projects.

Besides, a training programme was implemented from October 2013 until January 2014 in 15 countries, where a total of 468 teachers were trained. Teacher Coordinators from 16 pilot schools, experts and the project partners were involved as moderators, trainers and lecturers. In order to engage the education community nanOpinion launched a competition for high school students



“DISTILLED NANOIDEAS” is a contest aimed at school teachers and their students who have been working on nanotechnologies in the classroom and who want to communicate their conclusions with a work of art.

About nanopinion

  • nanopinion is an EC-funded project bringing together 17 partners from 11 countries with the aim of monitoring public opinion on what we hope from innovation with nanotechnologies. The project is aimed citizens with a special focus on hard-to-reach target groups, which are people who do not normally encounter and give their opinion nanotechnologies at first hand.
  • Dialogue is facilitated online and in outreach events in 30 countries presenting different participatory formats.
  • To promote an informed debate, we also run a strong press & social media campaign and offer a repository with more than 150 resources.
