Within the NanoDiode project, an education strategy and action plan has been developed, selecting best practices based on previous European experience with nanotechnology education. This strategy formed the basis for a series of education activities focusing on secondary education, including hands-on activities in schools, “teach the teacher”-workshops, a school competition and a ‘students as journalists’ video contest. Workshops have been performed in Austria, Germany and Poland, in cooperation with experts from local organizations such as Universities and Research Facilities, in order to provide inside knowledge from professionals. All performed educational activities were evaluated by the participants, using an online evaluation tool to assess the impact of educational tools for nanotechnology-related topics after their use in classes.
The lessons learned within the NanoDiode project hold lessons for future nanotechnology education activities.
NanoDiode findings can be used as the basis for future nanotechnology education activities, and will help improving the knowledge about and support preparedness of European society how to handle converging technologies.
