Good idea, we can organise the firs classroom about nanoscience...

Binoy, your idea of virtual classroom for Ning groups sounds very interesting. I recomend that you add this idea to the comments on the blog about Brainstorming. I am very sure that Andras would like to hear about it.

The internet is a wonderful medium to learn and teach nanoscience and technology. I have learnt a lot from the net. I believe that virtual classrooms can be introduced on Ning so that those who are interested can learn from people who know. I would be a great idea to invite eminent scientists from this field so that we could have a one - one interaction with them.

I would like to get information of how to introduce concepts of nanotechnology to 1st graders. One of our local elementary schools do a science week every year and I think it will be nice to bring some nanotech info into the classroom.

The Center for Biological and Environmental Nanotechnology (CBEN) at Rice University hosts several programs to engage students, teachers and the Houston community in in science and engineering using nanotechnology as a hook. Each spring we teach a semester long course graduate course, CHEM 570 Nanotechnology for Teachers and we have several summer programs for Houston students. Here is a clip from last summer's Nanochemistry Academy

The Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network (NISE Net) is a US funded project to create exhibits and programs to engage the public in nanoscale science. We include a number of science centers and museums, researchers, and educators. These photos include some examples of the kinds of exhibits that were tested. From march 29 throug april 6, 2008, we organized events across the country called "NanoDays". Over 100 participating organizations received kits with activities and introduced these to the public.

What kinds of activities do you do the help the public understand nanoscience? Is nano taught in your schools?

All I can see is a picture. Where is the article on How to teach Nanoscience?

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
