The NT-MDT Co. and the Kurchatov Institute held an international conference on nanoeducation in Russia

Russia | Posted on June 28th, 2010

The meeting had a unique format - the first educational international conference with trainings on working with nanoeducational equipment for teachers. 185 participants took part in the event, including representatives from Russia, the USA, Europe and CIS. The conference has become an essential part of Russian Government Federal Program.

The main goal of the conference was to overcome the gap between impetuous development of the modern nanoscience and the conservative system of education, especially in schools, where the teachers suffer serious problems in working with new equipment. The special workshops for teachers were organized in terms of the conference.

The main topics of the conference included such controversial areas as contemporary approaches to nanoeducation, educational process organizing and leading, the newest educational technologies, international university cooperation all over the world concerning personnel trainings for teachers and professors and etc. The discussion has touched all the educational levels at schools as well as in universities.

About 185 participants visited the conference including 35 school teachers from different Russian regions. During the conference they got a unique opportunity to train their skills of working with NANOEDUCATOR - special educational equipment for pupils and students. This training will help them to avoid problems during learning pupils. Moreover teachers got acquainted with many university professors, who shared their experience and knowledge. Many interesting contracts and projects between teachers and university representatives were planed and signed during this meeting.

NANOEDUCATOR is a scientific training complex with a set of learning aids, accessories for introducing students to nanotechnology and giving them a basic understanding of how work with objects at nanoscale level. It's a student oriented SPM developed for work by even first-time microscope users. NANOEDUCATORs are installed in Russian schools and universities by NT-MDT Co. in terms of the governmental contract. NT-MDT Co. has already equipped about 70 university centers and more then 40 high schools in Russia.

Installations of NANOEDUCATORs as well as the conference are essential parts of Government Federal Program aimed to develop highly qualified scientists in Russia. It was the personal idea of the Minister of education and science Andrey Fursenko who after visiting an international nanoexhibition had come to the decision to get Russian pupils and students acquainted with nanoworld in practice. Due to this program young investigators got an opportunity to feel and understand the nanoscale by their own hands and eyes.
