Nanotechnology in the Secondary Science Classroom (NISSC)
This project was an attempt to systematically develop curricular materials related to the topic of nanotechnology that could be incorporated into secondary science classrooms.  The goal was not to create a curriculum about nanotechnology, but to create materials the connect nanotechnology to traditional content already found in secondary science courses.  Nanotechnology was viewed by the curriculum's developers as an essential topic for incorporation into such courses because (1) it represents the current 'cutting edge' in science and, more importantly, (2) it offers a vehicle for more effectively integrating the different disciplines of science.  A caveat should be added, though, that the materials developed to date were put together by individuals with a chemistry background and thus do not fully represent this goal of reflecting an interdisciplinary nature.
