Nanotechnologies: Where should they take us? Have your say

Nanotechnologies: Principles, Applications, Implications and Hands-On Activities. A compendium for educators

Single and balanced compendium with much of the relevant and valuable educational material that will help inform, motivate and inspire young people about nanotechnologies and their applications. Theory, application and experiments in nanosciences and nanotechnologies are organised in self-contained modules that offer increased flexibility throughout the development of the course. Moreover, a case study approach provides teachers with practical applications and examples to discuss in class.

The programme focuses on three application fields — information and communication technologies, energy and environment, and medicine — and also addresses the associated ethical, societal, legal and safety aspects to encourage further dialogue. Resources and training materials are available to educators, supported, also, by online tutor web portals where young people and educators can actively participate in virtual dialogues, experiments and games
