Nanoweek for Schools 2011
Nanoweek 2011 kicked off on Monday with the launch of a new DVD on nanoscience produced by Centre for Research on Adaptive Nanostructures and Nanodevices (CRANN) for secondary school students. The Nano in My Life DVD, which aims to excite and engage students on the basics of nanoscience and its applications in their everyday lives, was piloted in six schools during Science Week 2010. Throughout the week all INSPIRE institutional partners will be visiting schools in Cork, Limerick, Galway, Kildare and Dublin in an effort to introduce nanoscience to secondary school students and will include lesson plans/worksheets linked to the current school curriculum. For more information about these workshops contact Aoife O'Donoghue, Outreach Officer, Tyndall National Institute. For a full programme of events during Nanoweek, click here.
