Teaching Nano & Emerging Technologies Webinar

When: Thursday, September 14, 2017, 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM

Time Zone: Eastern Daylight Time


The National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO) will hold the next in its series of free webinars for the K–12 community on Thursday, September 14, at 7 PM EDT. This event will feature Sherri Rukes, a physical science teacher with over 20 years of experience and President-elect of the American Association of Chemistry Teachers. The webinar will cover an introduction to nanotechnology, as well as applications from ancient time to present day. Ms. Rukes will also discuss activities and ideas to teach these concepts in your classroom.


Audience: Educators interested in bringing nano and emerging technologies into the classroom are encouraged to participate.


Registration: This webinar is free and open to the public with registration on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration is now open and will be capped at 500. Webinar viewers will be able to submit questions for Ms. Rukes to answer during the discussion period. Submitted questions will be considered in the order received and a moderator will identify relevant questions and pose them to the speaker. Due to time constraints, some questions may be grouped and some may not be addressed during the webinar.
