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:

Sue Greenberg, K-12 Outreach Coordinator at UNH, Parsons Hall, 23 College Rd. Durham, NH 03824, 603-862-3325; 862-4278 fax; susan.greenberg@unh.edu

We look forward to hearing from you.

(1) a three school consortium: Northeastern U., U Mass. Lowell, and UNH
