Grants fund projects that will tackle 'Grand Challenges'
Date:12/22/2010

21st Century Grand Challenge Workforce Needs

Led by Vincent Pizziconi, associate professor in the School of Biological and Health Systems Engineering, and B.L. Ramakrishna, associate professor in the School for Engineering of Matter, Transport and Energy

The goal is to create an Arizona Nanotechnology Education Collaboratory called AzNanoTEC to enhance education in science, technology, engineering and math in middle schools, high schools, colleges and universities in the state.

The project aims to attract more students to careers in engineering and science. It addresses the need to provide a growing workforce with the advanced knowledge of nanotechnology necessary to meet many of the national and global NAE Grand Challenges.

AZNanoTEC will team education researchers in a variety of fields of expertise, including ASU engineering faculty along with teachers from Phoenix Community College and Arizona Western Community College, and SanTan Junior High School and Basha High School in the Chandler Unified School District.

Once established, the AzNanoTEC team will pursue a long-term goal to create a Global Nanotechnology Education Collaboratory (GNanoTEC) involving international partnerships with educators in Taiwan and other countries to focus on the global educational needs of countries facing similar challenges.
