The NISE Net runs a series of online brown-bag conversations focused on helping partners share their work and learn from others in the Network. The aim of the online brown-bag conversations is to increase the number of professional development opportunities available to our partners, create more channels for Network partners to learn from each other directly, and create ways for partners to follow-up on ideas or efforts that emerge at in-person meetings.
Engaging Younger Audiences with Nanoscale Science
Thursday, December 11th; 2pm - 3pm ET / 11am - 12pm PT
Coco Tarantal, Children's Museum of Tucson, Early Childhood Education Specialist

Since 2008, NanoDays activities have been used to engage all types of audiences and families within the cutting-edge field of nanotechnology. When engaging different audiences, such as younger audiences including children ages 3-8, it is important to target your message in a language that is both understandable and engaging for that age group. Join us as NISE Net partners discuss their experiences working with younger audiences, which NanoDays activities they have found work best and why, how they’ve incorporated nano into their existing programming, as well as lessons learned while presenting on nanoscale science. Learn about our partners’ approaches and strategies for introducing this emerging science to their younger visitors.
