Since CBEN’s inception, our centerpiece K-12 educational outreach program has been providing high-quality, long-term teacher training. We do this by offering: CHEM 570 Nanotechnology for Teachers and Summer Internships in CBEN research laboratories.
Spring Content Course CHEM 570: Nanotechnology for Teachers
"I really like the structure of the course and the way we're being exposed to a variety of research areas. The grad students have all been wonderful about explaining everything and their PowerPoint are certainly appropriate for my students as well." D.G., Chemistry Teacher & Science Department Chair, Dawson High School

Summer Internship in Nanotechnology
Intern discussing lab protocols with Dr. McHale.
The goals of our summer internship program are to expose teachers to the research environment, to reinforce each teacher’s sense of science as a process, to deepen each teacher’s understanding of the achievements and potential of nanoscience, and to apply lessons learned from the content class to a research setting.
