Nanotechnologies: Where should they take us? Have your say

Nanoyou Lab Experiment A- Students Background reading (14-18)

Experiment A shows the relations between nanostructures and properties of natural nanomaterials. This document provides students with some background information on the experiment. The experiment is designed for the 14-18 years age group. This experiment is one of four experiments contained in the NANOYOU Teachers Training Kit of nanoscience and nanotechnologies


The NANOYOU project aimed to increase young people’s basic understanding on nanotechnologies (NT) and to engage in the dialogue about its ethical, legal and social aspects (ELSA) through a strong school program for students aged 11-18 and a wide range of activities in Science Centres for those aged 18-25

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.
