Audience: Educators interested in bringing nano and emerging technologies into the classroom.
Why: To introduce Remotely Accessible Instruments for Nanotechnology (RAIN) to teachers.
How: Invited speakers will introduce NACK and RAIN, share the experience of teachers who have used remote access, take the audience through the sign-up process, and then the audience will view a remote access session. The webinar will conclude with questions from the audience.
Registration: This webinar is free and open to the public with registration on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration is now open and will be capped at 500. To register, visit: https://nnco.adobeconnect.com/e3k0pjsbu7y/event/registration.html
The Teaching Nano & Emerging Technologies Webinar Series
The Network has launched a series of webinars for K-12 teachers in order for the community to share approaches and best practices.
An archive of the webinars will be available for viewing on NanoTube, the National Nanotechnology Initiative’s YouTube channel.
“An Introduction to Remotely Accessible Instruments for Nanotechnology,” is a free webinar presented on Tuesday, October 4, at 7 pm EDT. Representatives from the Center for Nanotechnology Education and Utilization, Seattle’s Hub for Industry-driven Nanotechnology Education, and Maricopa Advanced Technology Education Center will discuss a fascinating way of engaging your middle and secondary students in the world of nanotechnology. Live from your classroom, you can directly connect to and operate nanotechnology equipment such as Scanning Electron and Atomic Force microscopes. There is no charge and you can even have your own students send in samples and operate the machines.
Robert K. Ehrmann, Managing Director at Penn State University Center for Nanotechnology Education and Utilization

The webinar will be presented live through AdobeConnect. Following a brief introduction, the speakers will introduce NACK and RAIN, share the experience of teachers who have used remote access, take the audience through the sign-up process for RAIN, and then the audience will view a live remote access session. The webinar will conclude with questions from the audience.
