The National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO) will hold the next in its series of free webinars for the K–12 community to share approaches and best practices for teaching nano and emerging technologies on Tuesday, October 4, 2016, from 7-8 PM EDT. Join us to learn about Remotely Accessible Instruments for Nanotechnology (RAIN), 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.

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.

Overview:

“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.

Speakers:

Robert K. Ehrmann, Managing Director at Penn State University Center for Nanotechnology Education and Utilization
Kristine Schroeder, Co-PI and Interim Center Director, Seattle’s Hub for Industry-driven Nanotechnology Education
Michael Lesiecki, Executive Director Maricopa Advanced Technology Education Center

Format:

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.

The NNI is a U.S. Government research and development (R&D) initiative involving the nanotechnology-related activities of 20 departments and independent agencies. The United States set the pace for nanotechnology innovation worldwide with the advent of the NNI in 2000. The NNI today consists of the individual and cooperative nanotechnology-related activities of Federal agencies with a range of research and regulatory roles and responsibilities. Funding support for nanotechnology R&D stems directly from NNI member agencies, not the NNI. As an interagency effort, the NNI informs and influences the Federal budget and planning processes through its member agencies and through the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC). The NNI brings together the expertise needed to advance this broad and complex field—creating a framework for shared goals, priorities, and strategies that helps each participating Federal agency leverage the resources of all participating agencies. With the support of the NNI, nanotechnology R&D is taking place in academic, government, and industry laboratories across the United States.
