NACK Webinar Handout: RET Experience: Activities for the HS Classroom


    This handout, published by the Nanotechnology Applications and Career Knowledge (NACK), are from the RET Experience: Activities for the High School Classroom webinar that was presented on March 28, 2014. Presenters included Theresa Burch, Physics and Integrated Science Teacher at Ironwood High School, and Trevor Thornton, Director of the Center for Solid State Electronics at Arizona State University. The webinar covers how nanotechnology is recognized as an emerging enabling technology for the 21st century, in addition to the already established areas of information technology and biotechnology. The presenters argued that this is because of the scientific convergence of physics, chemistry, biology, materials and engineering at nanoscale, and of the importance of the control of matter at nanoscale on almost all technologies. Additional resources are included in this handout.
