Nano-technology: the science and the social implications

Bringing together key Deakin University scientists (each researching different aspects of nanotechnology) and teachers who are interested in representing this contemporary science and its implications in school classrooms, this FREE symposium is not to be missed!
Speakers include:
  • Dr Aaron Schultz (School of Life and Environmental Sciences)
  • Dr Marzieh Parhizkar (Institute for Frontier Materials)
  • Dr Sarah Shigdar (School of Medicine)
  • Professor Linda Hancock (Alfred Deakin Institute for Citizenship and Globalisation)

They will cover surprising new developments in nano-technology, their many applications and consideration of their social implications, before visiting scholar Associate Professor Nicolas Hervé (Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Formation de l’Enseignement Agricole (ENSFEA), University of Toulouse, France) joins them for a panel discussion.

A workshop for teachers to develop activities that can be used in the classroom will follow this seminar.
