This Guide provides information and resources for planning and hosting a Sharing Science Workshop & Practicum for early career researchers that will enhance their science communication skills, engage their interest in education and outreach, and prepare them for providing effective and rewarding education outreach experiences. An updated version (v 4.0) of the guide and materials was posted in April 2016. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions/comments. Please note: the PowerPoint presentation file called "Sharing Science Presentation - Slides v 4.0" below does not include select short video clips for this program. This is an attempt to make the file easier to download. Please follow the instructions for downloading video from Vimeo, found in FAQ #10 (nisenet.org/faqs) and then add them to appropriate slides in the PowerPoint presentation file. Links to the films on Vimeo appear below.
- Nanometer-sized things are very small, and often behave differently than larger things do.
- Scientists and engineers have formed the interdisciplinary field of nanotechnology by investigating properties and manipulating matter at the nanoscale.
- Nanoscience, nanotechnology, and nanoengineering lead to new knowledge and innovations that weren't possible before.
- Nanotechnologies—and their costs, utility, risks, and benefits—are closely interconnected with society and with our values.
