Nanoscience and nanotechnology enter the classroom thanks to the NanoKit project

The NanoKit is a briefcase containing nano experiences linked to different high school subjects, with the aim of incorporating nanoscience and nanotechnology to the contents that are taught in classrooms. On Thursday 22 December that first NanoKits have been delivered to representatives of CESIRE, a centre of the Catalan Ministry of Education, which will coordinate the distribution of this educational material in Catalonia. In the coming months, over 70 NanoKits will be deployed in Catalonia and some more will be shared with other Autonomous Communities thanks to a project of the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT).
