Nano in My Life

Nano in My Life introduces Transition Year and Senior Cycle students to nanoscience, which is set to become part of the proposed new Leaving Certificate syllabi.

There are seven modules, each using a range of teaching and learning approaches, designed to engage students and encourage active learning. Each module contains teachers notes, a Power Point presentation, video, curriculum links, timings, experiments and work sheets.

The 7 modules are:

  • Introduction to Nanoscience
  • Microscopy
  • Nano in Nature
  • Nanoscience and Materials
  • Nanotechnology and ICT
  • Nanoscience and Health Research
  • Nano and the Environment.

This is an excellent resource with relevant, practical activities for the classroom. It will be very useful in enabling teachers to introduce nanoscience to students.
