"Nanotechnology at Home 2010" competition for secondary school students

"Nanotechnology at Home 2010" competition for secondary school students (from 14 to 18 years)

Call for entries

The International NanoScience Community - TINC launches "Nanotechnology at Home 2010" a competition for secondary school students around the world.

The aim of the competition is to find out what high school students think about nanotechnology, and the new products created using nanosciences.

The nano-competition categories:

1st "Nanotechnology at Home 2010" - drawing competition.

(Only electronically submitted drawings /computer graphics, photo montage, sketch with pencils,…/ will be accepted.)

2nd "Nanotechnology at Home 2010" - essay competition.
(At least 5 typed pages /A4 page, Times New Roman, size 14/ in .PDF format)

3rd "Nanotechnology at Home 2010" - nanosciences related video

(The video should be min. 3 max. 5 minutes long.)

Application Deadline: 1st November 2010

The presentation and evaluation of applications will take place on the webpage of The International NanoScience Community (http://www.nanopaprika.eu). The winners /two in each category/ will win gift parcel related to nanotechnology and sciences; The works received will be published on the website. An international jury from the members of The International NanoScience Community has been assembled to judge all applications entered into the competition.

More information on http://www.nanopaprika.eu/group/nanocompetition website and editor@nanopaprika.eu e-mail address.

Drawings, short videos, and essays should be sent to the following address in electronic form before 1st November 2010: editor@nanopaprika.eu

About the TINC:

The heat is on for an online social networking community for nanoscientists. The Internet Nanoscience Community, TINC, was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student. It now provides a rich menu of communication tools for the international community of scientists working in the growing field of nanoscience and nanotechnology and recently passed the 3200 members mark.
The virtual nano community is fully equipped with all the functions one expects from a modern online networking site: personal chat, a scientific forum, more than 80 thematic groups, including microscopy, nanomedicine, and even a discussion forum on safety and toxicity. TINC is also a media partner for more than 50 nano conferences on ifferent topics in 2009 and 2010.
The Internet Nanoscience Community has pulled together a community with more than 3200 members, researchers, students, industrial partners from Europe, India, the USA, and 50 other countries. TINC is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

Dear Editor:
Since the present younger generation is highly imaginative, well read and have access to the newer resources, I propose another area for contest-NANO BEYOND IMAGINATION.They may be asked to imagine applications ,nano devices and other related areas which have not been talked of yet. Let them go beyond their imagination! May be , some one can come out with a wonderful idea!

Dear Editor,
I am happy to see the announcement concerning "Nanotechnology at Home 2010" competition. These competitions will generate awareness among the students.

I wish you a grand success of the event !

Best regards,

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
