The students of the Jakob-Fugger-Gymnasium Augsburg worked as teachers for one day. In context of the nanoyou project at JFG they presented their knowledge of modern nanotechnology to younger students.

Here is the report (actually only in German language)
The project day started on 14th of October 2010 at 8:00 am with a plenary session (8:10-8:55). After that there were some experimental and ELSA work in groups (6 different themes) with four groups parallel in different rooms (8:55-12:15).

As an introduction to the Nanoworld, a workshop was carried out by Santa Maria Secondary School (Azores-Portugal), on November 23rd, to celebrate the Portuguese “Science and Technology Week 2010”. In this activity the 14-15 years-old students could discover the Secrets of the Nanoworld and watch the NANOYOU film-Part 1 “What is Nano”.
To understand the Nano Scale, at the end of the session, all the students joined the activity “How tall are you in nanometres?” from the “TimeforNano NanoKit”.

In last week,on 24 november 2010,I made a presentation of Nanoyou Project at Agricultural School Group Alexandria ,Romania.
As you can see in ppt uploaded,I showed Nano site and we made D experiment (about superhydrophobic materials).
In the end of activity,Agricultural School Group Alexandria ,Romania envolved as pilot school in Nanoyou Project.
