SDNI C.E.N.T.E.R (Center of Excellence for Nano Technology Educational Resources)
C.E.N.T.E.R. is the Education arm of the SDNI and aims to provide guidance and assistance to educators (K-12, Community Colleges, and 4-years Universities) desirous of developing nanotechnology curriculum and providing education in the field. In the process, they have been and will continue to be very thorough about ensuring the alignment of nanotechnology content with the Next Generation Science Standards for K-12 education. The SDNI outreach program’s goal is to facilitate the development of Nanotechnology curriculum and its integration to the entire K-12 and Community College education systems across California by 2025 (The California NanoTech 2025 Project). In order to achieve this ambitious goal, SDNI intends to create strategic alliances with teachers and administrators operating in schools, community colleges, school district offices, and county offices of education.
