Title: Slides: Ways of Introducing Nano into Your Program PDF

Publisher: Maricopa Advanced Technology Education Center (MATEC)
Description: These are slides from the webinar that was recorded 3/6/09. Password is "networks".This webinar is designed for educators who are interested in learning more about nanotechnology and have a desire to incorporate nanotechnology into their coursework or into programs at their educational institutions. Nanotechnology is formally defined as the science and engineering of materials and structures which have at least one dimension less than or equal to 100 nanometers. This world of the nano-scale offers all kinds of new phenomena and therefore opportunities. The new phenomena can be startling. Some examples are structures that self-assemble, nano-particles that are too small to “feel” gravity, nano-particles that have intense anti-microbial activity, amazingly strong nano-wires, nano-particles with intense magnetic response, and metal nano-particles that do not have the color, nor even the melting temperature, of the normal sized samples. This session will explain why these unusual phenomena appear at the nano-scale, delve the history of nanotechnology, and explain why nanotechnology has become so important now in the 21st Century. The session will briefly look at some current and future applications of nanotechnology including those in energy conservation and production, medicine, and the environment. The national sharing mission of the newly formed National Science Foundation National Nanotechnology Applications and Career Knowledge (NACK) Center will be explained during this session. The NACK resources for teaching nanotechnology programs and courses that are available to educational institutions, and some potential options for how these can be utilized, will also be covered.
