From the 4th to 6th October teachers from the 26 new pilot schools travelled to Brussels to attend the training session that NANOYOU had prepared for them.

During this three-day meeting teachers were given an introduction to nanotechnologies, they got to discover and use the different tools that NANOYOU is offering –including some hands-on experiments! – and they engaged in discussions about the ethical, legal and social aspects (ELSA) that relate to nanotechnologies.

A teacher from the previous group of pilot schools gave a presentation explaining her experience using the NANOYOU resources with students, and  European Schoolnet presented other projects relevant to NANOYOU and to teachers, such as Scientix, a European community for science education.

New pilot schools are now preparing to start their activities with NANOYOU and soon they will share their experiences through the NANOYOU teachers’ blog.
