Sharing Nanotechnology with Students
Educators in the field of science instruction understand well that perceptions regarding the nanoscale held by teachers will affect the perceptions of their students. Therefore, it is very important to discover and share examples of innovative materials and scientific methods in nanoscience with students of all ages and make nanoscience a part of school curricula. In this chapter, we discuss generally how teachers share nanotechnology concepts with students. The main topics discussed in detail in this chapter: nanotechnology education contribution; teaching high school students nanoscience and nanotechnology; AFM to nano; STEM and nanotechnology topics; and social aspects in teaching of nanoscience and nanotechnology.
