Scientix 10th SPNE Brussels 26 Feb 2016: NanoEduca

  1. 1. Introduction of nanotechnology in secondary school" . “Nanotechnology is an enabling technology that allows us to develop materials with improved or totally new properties” JORDI DIAZ 24/02/2016
  2. 2. Objectives:  Form teachers, by as nanoeducators being able introduce nanotechnology concepts in they lessons without changing the curriculum.  Bring teachers training and reliable sources of information, so they will have the background to stimulate questions and ideas from the students.  Through “conventional” modules (chemistry, physics, biology, technology) , help students becoming the most prepare workforce in nanosciece and nanotechnology .  Create a dialog with society trough teachers and students about challenges, advantages and threats of nanotechnology. NANOEDUCA INITIATIVE is a pilot program to introduce nanotechnology education in high schools (12-17 years) learning programs in Catalonia (Spain) in a systematic and thoughtful way.
  3. 3. Methodology:  Develop course materials, with lesson plans, clear objectives, specific knowledge aims, curriculum links, hands-on activities, videos, assessment activities, etc.  Develop 4 different NANOKITS with hands-on activities used for intuitive explanations of nanotechnology concepts, technological processes and applications  Introduce teachers to nanoscience and nanotechnology basic concepts through 6 training activities:  Four learning and hands-on activities  Experimenting NANOEDUCA NANOKIT material in their own classes (2-3 weeks)  A final assessment activity. Evaluation questionnaire and class Poster
  4. 4. NANOEDUCA INITIATIVE will bring special attention to ETHICS OF NANOTECHNOLOGY. Student will visit and discuss the issues arising after visiting the CCCB Exhibition HUMAN+, which explores potential future trajectories of our species by considering both historical and emerging technologies, as well as their cultural and ethical contexts.
  5. 5. Geographic distribution Start-up meeting: 94 attendants Selection of 1 st NanoEduca full edition 18 high-schools 23 teachers
  6. 6. On-line campus (moodle)
  7. 7. NANOEDUCA INITIATIVE is divided in 6 sessions: Four training sessions Introduction to Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (5h) What is Nanotechnology? Nanomaterials: present and future Reliable online data sources in N&N for educators Hands-on activities with commercial nanoproduts Nanoeduca and societal implications (+HUMANS) Tools for learning and teaching N&N (4h) Online lectures databases in spanish and english. SEM Moodle and other online courses. Videos and images databases Educational and Research Laboratories in N&N (3h) Guided visit to a Nanotechnology teaching lab (AFM, STM, contact angle, etc) and experiments done by undergraduate students. Nanokit Hands-on and Course material (4h) Hands-on with the nanokits experiments Description of lesson plans and activities of each nanokit experiment Relationship with conventional curriculum
  8. 8. From Novembre 2015 to February 2016 on participating schools 5º Session. Experimenting NANOEDUCA & NANOKIT material + Production of lecturing Videos as complementary material https://vimeo.com/149879658
  9. 9. 6º Session. Final Assessment activity – poster contest 6 d’abril de 2016 - Lloc: CCCB Nanoeduca initiative results will be evaluated by:  Unique Questionnaire designed by nanoeduca to be filled in by teachers and students  Poster contest where each class will present the acquired knowledge in N&N including ethic and societal implications. This event form part of the Nanoscience Festival for society: 10alamenos9
  10. 10. NANOEDUCA INITIATIVE IS:  Jordi Diaz – Head of Nanometric Techniques Unit at CCiT and Associate researcher Universitat de Barcelona Coordinator of NANOEDUCA Initiative  Gemma Garcia – Faculty member of Physics Department Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona  Àlex Argemí - Scientific Communication Manager  Ana de la Osa - Events Officer ICN2 – Catalan Institute of Nanotecnology  Julio Pérez and STEM staff from CESIRE – Center for Educational Research and Innovation (Department of Education) In collaboration with
  11. 11. COMPLEMENTARY ACTIONS: Nanoscience Festival for society The Festival aims, in a fun and exciting way to bring all public the nanoworld Exhibitions, workshops, seminars ... and many more exciting activities with the aim of sharing the importance and impact of nanoscience and nanotechnology.
