Nanotechnology is going to play an imperative role in socio-economic development in the future; efforts have to be done in producing educated, qualified and well-trained learners that can fulfill the needs of the industry in the future. Therefore it is essential to introduce the course of nanotechnology to an early stage study. After studying this subject, your child will be able to understand the fundamentals of nanotechnology and its real-world applications. This way your child can make better decisions about his future career development and also contribute to the technology development in our society.
Most of nanotechnology’s benefits will happen decades in the future, but it’s already helping towards improving our world in many different ways. Life itself is an example of nanotechnology: proteins, bacteria, viruses, and cells all work on the Nano scopic scale. Nanotechnology can also benefit the energy sector. The development of more effective energy-producing, energy-absorbing, and energy storage products in smaller and more efficient devices is possible with this technology. Items like batteries, fuel cells, and solar cells can be built smaller but can be made to be more effective with this technology.
Your child will develop a rich knowledge foundation about the physical and life sciences. It expands upon the knowledge learned in earlier grades to understand the microscopic structures of materials and substances. Microorganisms, the five human senses, Nano food, structure and function of Nano products, applications of nanotechnology all become part of the curriculum.
Another industry that can benefit from nanotechnology is the manufacturing sector that will
need materials like nanotubes, aerogels, Nano particles, and other similar items to produce their products with. These materials are often stronger, more durable, and lighter than those that are not produced with the help of nanotechnology.
In the medical world, nanotechnology is also seen as a plus since these can help with creating smart drugs. These help cure people faster and without the side effects that other traditional drugs have. You will also find that the research of nanotechnology in medicine is now focusing on areas like tissue regeneration, bone repair, immunity and even cures for such ailments like cancer, diabetes, and other life threatening diseases. Student’s awareness of benefits of nanotechnology at an early stage will have a lasting impact on their future.
Nanotechnology has personal and social perspectives including natural resources, environmental quality, natural and human-induced hazards and science and technology in local, national, and global challenges. Introduction of this subject will broaden students’ thought spectrum and develop their cognitive skills. They will have a developed mind set and direction to choose a field to pursue their studies and help them in the decision to opt the right career for their bright future.
Nanotechnology will be taught by creating both knowledge-centered and learning centered environments inside and outside the classroom. Nanotechnology is a very fast developing technology that requires a lot of creative ideas besides the understanding of its concepts. In addition, activities are designed in the curriculum that encourages creative and critical thinking at highest priority throughout the learning process. Besides, we have designed an interdisciplinary curriculum that covers a broad understanding of basic sciences relating with engineering sciences and information sciences pertinent to nanotechnology is essential. In view of the importance of nanotechnology for the future, the primary level teachers or instructors will undertake a dedicated effort to enforce the concept of nanotechnology provided in the curriculum.
Nanotechnology has been introduced specifically for the purpose of exposing your child to the concept of nanotechnology as an emerging science. Teachers will also be trained in this area and will be capable enough to use the nanotechnology approach in their lessons. It has been held mandatory that the instructor of Nanotechnology necessarily have studied Sciences throughout his/her school and college educations.
