Sitting here, I began to get very excited about being more present in the social media scene. I began to fantasize about blogs I can write and having people read them. And then suddenly I remembered the incident back in February when a…Continue

This morning's presentation was wonderful and really thought-provoking for me. It made me think about the potential power that I have through social media to spread information and awareness, and how little I utilize this amazing medium. It is true…Continue

To coordinate with the post about the nanotechnology symposium and workshop, here are high school and middle school lesson plans related to nanotechnology. Brookhaven National Labs has the National Synchrotron Light Source I and is now building NSLS II, and they will need scientists to work at these facilities. I am a home and careers skills teacher and a career technology educator (CTE).

If you thought learning how to use social media for educational purposes was overwhelming this week, there may be a nanocomputer that could enhance your learning capacity, one day! This is just one example of "human enhancement" in nanotechnology language.

I know it sounds like science fiction but you have already been exposed to nanotechnology and may not know it.

"Use of nanomaterials in food packaging is already a reality. One example is bottles made with nanocomposites that minimize the leakage of carbon dioxide out of the bottle; this increases the shelf life of carbonated beverages without having to use heavier glass bottles or more expensive cans. Another example is food storage bins with silver nanoparticles embedded in the plastic. The silver nanoparticles kill bacteria from any food previously stored in the bins, minimizing harmful bacteria."

To take a peek into the future you may be interested in this symposium and workshop this Monday.


Event Description
The Center for Inclusive Education in conjunction with the Nanotechnology Studies Program will host a symposium & workshop on the ethical and societal impact of nanotechnology.

Here is a post on a site I follow on some topics we have been discussing.

I was taking notes from the PP presentation and the speaker, by typing on a "note" on the laptop, rather than using a pen. There was no folder provided with note paper for this workshop, so that was the logical way to record information. Also, when interesting sites were discussed, I created a folder and bookmarked them for future reference. So not all participants were going off into deeper understandings of new material while the presentation continued. If I want to know more about something, later I can go on YouTube and see if there is a good video that describes "How to use ....."
