Nanotechnologies: Where should they take us? Have your say


The TechNyou Science Education Resource provides science teachers resources to introduce emerging technologies in the classroom. These resources have been matched to the Australian Curriculum in Science for secondary year students, and are designed to introduce nanotechnology and biotechnologies with reference to the established traditional science disciplines of Physics, Chemistry and Biology.

TechNyou Science Education Resources is the combined work of Education Services Australia, and the former AccessNano and Biotechnology Online education resources. It is an Australian Government initiative supported by the Department of Industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education's (DIISRTE) National Enabling Technology Strategy's Public Awareness and Community Engagement (NETS-PACE) section. It is designed to provide educational resources that are relevant to the Australian Curriculum in Science which introduce the fields of nanotechnology and biotechnology to the classroom. It is also designed to be long-lived and continually developing, users of the resource have the opportunity to apply their own knowledge and experience and amend the resource so it is constantly improving.

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.
