The University of Wisconsin Madison Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) Interdisciplinary Education Group uses examples of nanotechnology and advanced materials to explore science and engineering concepts at the college level and brings the "wow" and potential of nanotechnology and advanced materials to the public.

GOALS

The university works to enhance understanding of college level science and engineering by creating new instructional materials based on current advances in nanoscale science and technology through the development and dissemination of kits; authorship of journal publications; creation and dissemination of in-depth, high-visual content, instructional resources on the web; and presentation and demonstration of innovative instructional materials at conferences and workshops for professionals.

The university also strives to enhance public appreciation of science and engineering through a central theme of "Exploring the Nanoworld" using web dissemination to novice learners; presentations in general public venues; contributions to popular publications and media.
