Inspiring Youth to Explore Nano science

The goal of NISE net is to educate the public on the importance of nanotechnology and its many applications. We will work with Ron English (middle school teacher) to design experiments for students at Cruickshank Middle School. Our experiments will adhere closely to the common core standards and reinforce the concepts taught in the classroom. More importantly, students will benefit tremendously with the hands-on learning experience and give them early exposure to the nano world.
