Nanotechnology Workshop Offerings
Thanks to NSF grant DUE-1700630, the Nanotechnology Professional Development Partnership (NPDP) offers two types of free live web-streaming workshops. Whether you need introductory information to the world of nano, are ready to implement nano-concepts into your classroom, or are interested in implementing a full nanotechnology program at your institution, these are great cutting-edge knowledge, professional development opportunities at no cost to you!

Our partners in developing and presenting these workshops include: Atlanta Technical College (Atlanta, GA), Coppin State University (Baltimore, MD), Erie Community College (Buffalo, NY), Forsyth Technical Community College (Winston-Salem, NC), Ivy Tech Community College of Indiana (South Bend, IN), North Seattle College (Seattle, WA), Northwest Vista College (San Antonio, TX), and Penn State University (State College, PA).
 
 
Introduction to Nanotechnology for Educators Workshop  
Join us and explore the world of nanotechnology! Participants will learn about:
  • The growing applications of nano in industries including: biotechnology, Microelectromechanical systems, optoelectronics, and many more!
  • The basics of nanofabrication processes and tools.
  • How cleanrooms are used both in institutions and for outreach by virtually visiting cleanrooms around the country.
This workshop is designed for: Post-Secondary and Secondary STEM Educators; Guidance Counselors; School Administrators, and others.

There is no cost to participate in this workshop if your application is selected. Applications must be submitted by the deadline stated on the application to be considered.

Participation: Will be using free video conferencing through zoom.us which will include breakout sessions, polls, discussion groups, etc. Participants will be given opportunities to interact with both the lecturers, other participants, and remotely accessible nanotechnology equipment.

Tech Requirements: webcam, microphone, internet access

Workshop Dates:
  • Four consecutive Friday sessions beginning on Feb. 9, 2018 and ending on Mar. 2, 2018 from 11:00 am – 3:00 pm EST (duration: 16 hours)

On-Site Hands-On Workshop  
Only applicants who have demonstrated nanotechnology proficiency and completed the Nano Curriculum I and II workshops will be eligible to attend one of four NPDP sites (Erie Community College, Forsyth Tech, Ivy Tech, or Penn State) for a hands-on workshop. These multi-day workshops are designed to give the participant actual experience within a cleanroom to aid them in implementing the material into their own coursework and/or program.

There is no registration fee and approved travel costs will be reimbursed after the workshop.
Curriculum Delivery Workshops  
A series of two workshops, the Nano Curriculum Materials Workshops (formerly known as our “Nanotechnology Course Resource Workshops” and “Train the Trainer” Workshops) were created to provide faculty with:
  • Resources (labs, presentations, and more) and
  • Guidance to effectively teach undergraduate nanotechnology courses.
Please note: These two workshops do not need to be taken in sequence.
These workshops are designed for: Post-Secondary faculty and administrators.

There is no cost to participate in this workshop if your application is selected. Applications must be submitted by the deadline stated on the application to be considered.

Participation: Will be using free video conferencing through zoom.us which will include breakout sessions, polls, discussion groups, etc. Participants will be given opportunities to interact with both the lecturers, other participants, and remotely accessible nanotechnology equipment.
