Tackle a crash course in nanotechnology followed by group decision-making and prioritizing future research. Students decide their own future. Do we first design a cloak of invisibility, nanoparticle fuel cells, or a space elevator? What would you choose? Then, suppose you were a mother in Mozambique or a soldier overseas – would your choices be the same?
Crash course includes using nanotechnology to create your own bookmarks.
No prior knowledge of nanotechnology is required.
Science and technology topics include:
Project-based Learning, Nanotechnology, Chemistry, Advanced Materials & Processes, Careers and New Technologies
