NANOYOU will have a very strong school programme on nanotechnologies (NTs) aimed at students aged 11-18, which will be completely adapted to their educational needs.
In this section, Nanoyou offers Teacher Training kits for different age groups, as well as for science centres. The modules are available to all teachers interested in organising educational activities within their schools, and includes background materials, literature and specific case studies, all related to the contents of other tools and workshops developed within Nanoyou.
The school programme focuses on three topical sub-areas: information and communication technology (ICT), energy and environment, and medicine. Resources and training materials are available for educators, as well as the Web Portal where students can actively participate in virtual dialogues, experiments and games.
NANYOU’s school programme will be implemented in two stages, a first one with pilot schools selected via an open call (beginning in January 2010) and a second one open to all schools (beginning in October 2010).
The science centres programme will be targeted towards the 19-25 age groups and will be more focused, with specific discussions about the sub-area of NT and ICT. This programme will begin in January 2010 and will initially be targeted towards participants around La Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie in Paris and the Centre de Culture Scientifique Techinique et Industrielle in Grenoble.
