An Invitation to K-12 Teachers in New Hampshire
September 12, 2005
The Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center (NSEC)-Center for High-rate Nanomanufacturing (CHN) (1) at the University of New Hampshire would like to invite K-12 teachers to participate in outreach activities during the 2005-2006 academic year, starting in October or November. After a successful K-12 teacher conference in April, 2005 and a week-long teacher institute in July, 2005, we are now planning the following:
For elementary, middle school and high school teachers and their classes:
Faculty involved with the CHN are willing and happy to visit your school to give an introduction/overview of nanotechnology to your faculty and/or your students.
The following information can be presented:
- What is Nanotechnology?
- Why is Nanotechnology an important field of study and research?
- What new Medical, Electronic, and Homeland Security applications are possible?
- How will these products impact our lives?
- What are the societal- including environmental - impacts of Nanotechnology?
- Are there ethical issues associated with new Nanotechnologies?
- When will the first Nanotechnology products hit the market?
Also for high school teachers and their classes:
Plan a visit to the University of New Hampshire, tour the research labs of CHN faculty, participate in an introductory nano-lab, and hear an overview slide show about nanotechnology.
If you are interested in either or both of these activities, or wish to inquire about other possibilities, please contact:

We look forward to hearing from you.
