Nano@school, teaching high-schoolers about micro and nanotechnology

Every year, students and teachers from Grenoble area high schools visit MINATEC to tour the campus and learn about the exciting world of nanoscience. Nano@school participants also get a unique opportunity to use CIME Nanotech’s state-of-the-art teaching facilities (at the Grenoble Institute of Technology-Joseph Fourier University platform).

TEACHERS: UNLOCKING THE SECRETS OF NANOSCIENCE

MINATEC offers high-school physics, chemistry, biology, and earth science teachers two half-days of training on “The Modern Physics and Chemistry of Everyday Items” to learn the basics of nanoscience.
Between 60 and 80 teachers, or around 12% of the Grenoble school district’s total teachers in these subjects, take part in this program every year; the half-days of training are given in May and November.

 

STUDENTS: LEARNING HANDS-ON


Under Nano@school, science-oriented high-school seniors—along with their physics, chemistry, biology, and earth science teachers—take part in workshops at CIME Nanotech using the center’s special teaching facilities (including a clean room, biotech equipment, and the Nanomonde lab).
These workshops, led by teaching faculty or researchers, provide a rare hands-on learning experience and complement the theoretical work that students do in the classroom
