The future of the NNI depends on a highly skilled workforce across the entire technology development pathway. In addition to targeted nanotechnology education, the novel properties at the nanoscale can provide a spark to excite students to pursue science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers and help build a robust domestic workforce. NNCO and the NNI agencies use a variety of mechanisms to support public outreach and education from “K to grey” and emphasize opportunities and access to resources, especially for people in traditionally underserved communities.
Opportunities for teachers and students include facilitated networks. Explore further using the links on the left.
