1 T EACHING NANO Walt Trybula, Ph.D. IEEE Fellow & SPIE Fellow Trybula Foundation, Inc. & Ingram School of Engineering Texas State University-San Marcos "Journey into Nanotech Educator Institutes Applied Nanotech, Inc., Austin, TX June 30, 2011

2 W HY I S S PECIALIZED E DUCATION R EQUIRED ? Image from Deb Newberry, Nano-Summit, October 2010 Presentation

3 R EMEMBER THE M ATURITY OF S TUDENTS Which microscope do you let First Graders use? OR How do you explain a billion times to someone who can not add? Remember: What are we trying to achieve?

4 T HERE ARE T HREE R OADS Address Teachers Address Students Address Both

5 A DDRESS T EACHERS Workshops Training Sessions Material Focus

6 A DDRESS S TUDENTS Bootcamps Specialized Exhibits Intense Training

7 A DDRESS B OTH Train the Trainers Adapt Material Through Student Training Sessions Interactive Focus with Feedback from Both

8 T HERE ARE T HREE C HOICES Work within the system Work Independently of the System Develop Adaptability

9 W ORK W ITHIN THE S YSTEM Develop Curriculum Obtain Approval – Local Level Obtain Higher Ed Approval Insert into Existing Classes Upgrade and Enhance

10 W ORK I NDEPENDENTLY OF THE S YSTEM Effort to Convince Educators to Evaluate They Must Convince System to Allow Insertion To Equip or Not to Equip If Equip, Funding is an Issue – Maintenance is Non-trivial To be Always Current Requires Funding and Upgrade Mechanism

11 D EVELOP A DAPTABILITY Adopt Successes of Others Incorporate Equipment Suppliers Small Cadre to Develop and Test Initial Concepts Evolve into Train the Trainers Apply Actual Experience at Student Activities

12 T HREE R ECOMMENDATIONS Learn from others Adapt from existing frameworks Create novel approaches

13 L EARN F ROM O THERS Dakota County Technical College Program Education Texts SEMI Foundation Effort SkillPoint NanoInks Nano Professor

14 A DAPT FROM E XISTING F RAMEWORK IEEE Real World Engineering Projects American Society for Engineering Education DONT forget Safety!

15 C REATE N OVEL A PPROACHES Second Life LinkedIn Groups Interactions with Industry Reach Out to Community & Business Leaders

16 H OW TO P ROCEED Decide on Focus Group [K-4, 5-8, 9-12] Develop/Adapt Needed Resources Implement Pilot Group Modify/Enhance Based on Reception and Impact Develop Plan to Distribute
