The 1st International Collaboration in U.S. on K-12 nano science courses
A long-held dream of a team of engineering professors and teachers from Taiwan to visit the United States and share their vision for K-12 nano science education was a very informative experience for the participants from both countries.
Arizona State University and University of Wisconsin at Madison were the hosts for this tour facilitated by The NanoTechnology Group Inc.
