Kickoff Session Sneak Peek: “Get Hands-on with Nano”

Posted in: 8th Annual Kickoff Conference

Track: STEM in Education

Activities developed at Nano-Link, a National Science Foundation regional center, part of the Advanced Technological Education Program, will be used to illustrate how a simple material’s “macro behavior” can be used to illuminate a number of key nano concepts.

Nano-Link module development principles and learning outcomes (based on Big Ideas in Nano Science and Engineering) will be presented as well as some tips for module integration into courses/curriculum.
