The MRSEC Education Group creates educational modules based on materials science and nanotechnology research done at the University of Wisconsin – Madison. On their website, you can find a large collection of activities ranging from labs that can be done in the classroom to tabletop demonstrations suitable for informal education venues. Our group is the NSF-funded UW Materials Research Science and Engineering Center Interdisciplinary Education Group (UW MRSEC IEG). We use examples of nanotechnology and advanced materials to enhance public understanding of fundamental science and engineering concepts and to share the excitement and potential of these interdisciplinary fields with K-12 audiences and the general public.
