NSF Grantees Poster Session
We report the alignment between NSF grant goals and existing course goals, along with the process of developing, revising, and implementing two nanotechnology interventions to fulfill these goals. Specifically, we describe how nanotechnology was integrated into a first-year engineering course that does not have exposing students to nanotechnology as a course goal, but does afford opportunities for such through its existing goals and project assignment structures. We also reported findings based on analysis of this large-scale implementation that suggest greater need for training and structure to support consistency in nanotechnology opportunities presented across various instructors’ sections of the same courses.
