Nanoeduca Kits

Nanoscience experiences in the classroom

Scientists, teachers and communicators work together in an ICN2 co-funded initiative, involving UB, UAB and CESIRE, to design a program to bring nanoscience into the classrooms: NanoEduca. It includes the production of a kit of nanoscience-related educative experiments. The kits are intended to offer teachers a set of interactive experiences involving nanoscience that are linked to subjects such as Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics or even Philosophy.

The kits were tested in a Pilot program involving over 20 schools (2015-2016). A new improved edition of 100 kits is now being distributed to schools in Catalonia and other regions of Spain in collaboration with the Catalan Ministry of Education (Departament d'Ensenyament de la Generalitat de Catalunya). The Project is funded by the Fundación Española para la Ciencia y la Tecnología - Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad, the ICN2 Severo Ochoa Program, the University of Barcelona and the Fundació Catalana per a la Recerca i la Innovació (FCRi).
