One of the primary missions of the Nano-CEMMS Center is to develop a diverse workforce of educators, scientists, engineers, and practitioners to advance nanomanufacturing technology in the United States and around the world. All graduate students, post-doctoral associates and fellows, researchers and professors affiliated with the Center assist in accompishing this educational mission.
In order to fulfill our educational mission, the Center provides a wide range of programs specifically targeted towards underserved populations to increase K-12 and undergraduate educational opportunities, and to provide graduate students with teaching experience in an emerging field. For more information on our educational programs, please visit the portion of our site which discusses our work with high school students, K-12 teachers, undergraduate, and graduate students.
In addition to those educational programs, a variety of classroom teaching materials have been developed to bring cutting edge research in nanotechnology into K-12 classrooms. Teachers can download instructional materials (including videos) directly from our website, and/or they can reserve educational modules, (shipped free of charge, including return postage), via our online ordering system for use in their classrooms.
