Hi Lena and Dave, I am interested in developing material to introduce nanoscience in the field of biology/life sciences for grade 10-12 children sub-saharan africa. The challenge is to make a small world real to children where even normal microscopes are a luxury. Like to hear your experiences.

Lena what do you mean by "implementation of nanotechnology in school education"?

Dear colleagues, what do you think about implementation of nanotechnology in school education? When I was young I would be happy to have such classes in school schedule. I see many pluses in this idea: It is not as boring as ordinary classes, children can see how their work could look like, It can raise their interest in science generally and nano science in particular.
And the main minus is that children might be overworked, especially in their upper classes.

What else?

Thanks in advance

The ICPC Nanonet project (EU funded under FP7) offers you a free open access Nano Archive of nearly 7,000 items including many full texts at Please contact me if you would like to archive your research and I will create an editor's account for you. I am also interested in communicating with researchers in sub-Saharan Africa for an annual region report. Join the international network at Lesley

Okay -- time to confess -- I am not a nanoscience specialist. I NEED a nanoscience specialist who is interested in educating others about this evolving field.

I am preparing a general chemistry textbook that emphasizes applied chemistry by incorporating applied examples and focused chapters on specific disciplines. Nanoscience is one obvious area of applied chemistry. I am looking for a specialist to write this chapter. These do not need to be faculty, but researchers, graduate students, or senior students with an interest in this area (chemistry in nanoscience) would be ideal.

About the text: Exploring Chemistry is a first-year general chemistry textbook for advanced students and science majors. The text consists of 20 focused chapters plus 11 chapters on the applications of chemistry in specialized fields (food science, forensic science, pharmaceutical science, etc.). A nanoscience chapter would be an excellent fit. Exploring Chemistry is still in draft, with the second draft being developed for Fall 2009. The nanoscience chapter does not need to be completed for this draft, but December 2009 or April 2010 would be nice.

About the chapter: I require 15 - 20 pages of text and images targeted to second-year university science students, in chapter examples and exercises, end of chapter exercises, and a few short (1-3 paragraph) stories highlighting one application of the chapter material. My knowledge of nanoscience is limited and I leave it to educators with a nanoscience specialization to best summarize this rapidly expanding field, but to also entice students to want to know more.

The table of contents and the first chapter of the text are available at

I would like to draw your attention to which provides "online simulation and more" to a broad nanotechnology community. There are now over 91,000 annual users, over 7,100 ran some 400,000 simulations. Over 70 classes in over 40 institutions used for teaching in the academic year 08/09.
There are now dedicated resources that combine tools and homework assignments. For an overview see:

After a considerable delay, I am pleased to inform you that the first issue of the Journal of Nano Education now is available for your review. Articles appearing in the first issue will be freely available until December 31, 2009.

The journal may be accessed from the publisher's website, i.e. .

Notification regarding the release of the journal's first issue is being sent to several listservs and contact lists; therefore, please excuse the possible delivery of duplicate messages to your Inbox.

Manuscript submissions currently are being accepted for peer review and publication consideration in subsequent issues of the journal. Should you have any queries regarding the suitability of your manuscript for publication consideration in the Journal of Nano Education, please do not hesitate to contact me.

I look forward to working further with you.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
