It’s hard for anyone to learn the basics and then keep up with the technical side of nanotech. To the ressue: the National Center for Learning and Teaching in Nanoscale Science and Engineering:
NCLT is the first national center for learning and teaching of nanoscale science and engineering education in the US.
Its vision is to build a globally competitive Nanoscale Science & Engineering (NSE) workforce and well-rounded NSE education leaders.
The mission of the NCLT is to build national capacity in Nanoscale Science and Engineering Education (NSEE).
The primary focus of the NCLT is on “learning and teaching through inquiry and design of nanoscale materials and applications.”
The anticipated outcome will be a new next generation of leaders in NSEE to advance STEM education in our country.
Although it’s called National, they have an International Virtual Institute, presumably open to all. Sounds like webcasts are a major delivery mechanism, though I couldn’t find the list in a quick browse.
Here’s an interview of the director. Dig in!
