KANĀDA'S KIDS: NanoGaming and NanoArt vis-à-vis Science Education

(Image Source: www.vibrantskin.net)

In affiirmative response to András' request that I augment my NanoGaming video posts
(17 September 2008) with a write-up, I have created this blog. I will periodically (or sporadically, as time and inspiration allow) convey information on NanoGaming and NanoArt -particularly as it relates to science education. Being engaged in the medical library field, I anticipate highlighting items, featuring material, or otherwise directing attention towards what I deem to be of keen interest as such becomes known to me. My approach generally will be descriptive -rather than analytical, technical, or interpretive- at the level of my understanding.

This blog is dedicated in the name of Kanāda, the ancient Hindu sage (circa 600 BCE) who expounded the notions of vishesha (particularity) and hrasva (dwarf); and who propounded the Vaiseshika system of inquiry which investigated dvyanuka (biatomic molecules) and tryanuka (triatomic molecules).

The term "kids" was initially chosen as my blogging efforts were to be devoted towards NanoEd at the grade school (K-12) and undergraduate levels; but was ultimately selected with the understanding that we all -pupil or Professor, dilettante or Doctor- are still but thumb-sucking infants as we endeavour to understand the Universal Mind as manifested in and through the science of Nano.

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 editor@nanopaprika.eu
