Home > Press > NSTA's 'The Big Ideas of Nanoscale Science and Engineering' Introduces Students and Teachers to the Basics of Nanoscience

Abstract:
Middle and high school science teachers will find this title strategic for teaching students fundamental science concepts inherent in the emerging fields of nanoscience, nanotechnology, and engineering. With support from the National Science Foundation, a group of scientists, educators, researchers, and curriculum developers identified nine key concepts, and the authors provide a thorough discussion of these big ideas with the intent of improving general science literacy.

NSTA's 'The Big Ideas of Nanoscale Science and Engineering' Introduces Students and Teachers to the Basics of Nanoscience

Arlington, VA | Posted on April 8th, 2010

Chapters cover the learning goals and how to achieve them, students' likely misconceptions, interdisciplinary connections, how to integrate the ideas into a curriculum, and new ways of considering traditional science content relevant to nanoscale science and engineering. Teachers of all disciplines will appreciate the enormous implications of the extremely tiny nanoscale phenomena that will interest students in the study of 21st-century science and motivate them to learn traditional science.
