Program Management System - 21st BCCE - Integration of Nanotechnology into the Chemistry Curriculum

Symposium Title: Integration of Nanotechnology into the Chemistry Curriculum
Descrption: Advances in nanotechnology are impacting almost every facet of our lives, and whether a student is seeking a post-graduate degree in Chemistry, a degree in medicine, a position in industry, etc., he or she will surely encounter some manifestation of nanotechnology. The proposed purpose of this symposium is to attempt to address two primary questions. To what extent do students graduating with degrees in Chemistry need to have been exposed to nanoscience, and how can a Department successfully integrate nanotechnology and nanoscience, from theory to experiments, into the Chemistry Curriculum. In particular, how can the important topics revealed in the former question be addressed by Departments that may be limited by resources, faculty, equipment, and / or students? Presentations that can address these issues or give insight into the successful integration of nanotechnology and the Chemistry Curriculum are encouraged.
