Prepare Students to Make Smart Environmental Decisions Using NSTA’s Welcome to Nanoscience: Interdisciplinary Environmental Explorations

Arlington, VA | Posted on January 24th, 2012

This volume comprises two parts. The first provides background material for the teacher and answers important questions: What is nanoscience and technology? What are the important historical and societal aspects of nanotechnology? How is nanoscience related to environmental science? The second part of the volume contains five lessons.

Each classroom-tested, inquiry-based investigation follows the BSCS 5E Instructional Model and includes step-by-step procedures, materials lists, and data charts. Teachers may use the entire curriculum or pick and choose among its several parts, depending on their preferred emphasis, the course level, and available time. The flexible curriculum offers numerous entry and exit points. Also included is a link to a downloadable computer simulation program, which was specially designed to allow students to explore the atomic force microscope—even if their school doesn't have one.
