Overview

Science is changing at a vast pace with new discoveries and learning happening around the world daily. With this continual change in the field of science, we also need to continually develop student’s interest by engaging them in these new aspects and the applicability of science to their future. 

The application of science at a molecular level, nanotechnology promises to dramatically impact the world in new and amazing ways.  Advances in this field are revolutionizing medicine, energy production, environmental protection, bioindustries and more. 

To ensure Alberta students are equipped to thrive in a world of emerging technology, Alberta Innovates – Technology Futures has teamed up with Alberta Advanced Education and Technology and science teachers from across Alberta to develop a series of exciting and engaging nanotechnology lesson plans.
