"Engaging the Public in Nano" provides an overview of key concepts in nanoscale science, engineering, and technology, as identified by the NISE Network. This document is intended as a resource for educators and others who engage the public in informal learning experiences.
The NISE Network content map articulates the key ideas for our educational products, including programs, exhibits, and media experiences. It presents the content knowledge the network has identified as the most important for engaging the public in learning about nanoscale science, engineering, and technology. Content map resources include the full written text document, a powerpoint presentation outlining the map, and a one-page graphic summary of the map. The content map was created in 2011 and revised in 2012.
These colorful educational posters cover all four NanoDays key concepts. Use the posters to help decorate and define the space for your NanoDays event, call attention to specific activities or programs, and provide additional content to visitors.
