Helping High School students learn about Nanomaterials

Thursday, January 17, 2019

A collaboration between researchers at Golisano Institute for Sustainability, researchers in the Environmental Science program at RIT, and Rochester’s World of Inquiry School No. 58 resulted in their outreach project being featured in the National Science Teacher Association (NSTA) Free Resources newsletter, Dec. 2018. 


The project, Nanomaterials: To Use or Not to Use, was designed for high school biology and AP Environmental Science students.  This module presented four lessons; Exploring nanomaterials, Introduction to material flows, Effects of emerging pollutants, and Communicating results. 


Elizabeth Moore, PhD Candidate, Golisano Institute for Sustainability, who worked with students at the Rochester school said their goal was to share their nanomaterial outreach educational materials with a large audience of teachers and students and was excited to note that NSTA has over 50,000 members that subscribe to the newsletter each month.
