Australia's Leading Nanotechnology Education Centre Opens at St Helena

On Friday 18 May 2007, The Honourable John Lenders MLC, Victorian Minister for Education, launched the St Helena Innovative Nanotechnology Education program ("SHINE") in the Science & Information Technology Centre, St Helena Secondary College, Wallowa Road, Eltham North.

The SHINE program is Australia's first major nanotechnology course for secondary schools, and one of the first in the world. It will be implemented in schools across Victoria, and made available to schools in Australia and New Zealand, over coming years. The Minister launched a SHINE package consisting of curricula, extension programs in art, the NanoVic nanotechnology laboratory, and the dedicated SHINE website.
