Project Ö (N):

NanoScienceOpen: Bringing nanoswitches to the public and the nature of science to pupils
(since 2015)

This project aims at the development, application and evaluation of experiments and supplementary materials to foster and support a flow of basic ideas, methods and key results from the Collaborative Research Center to the public. The primary target group comprises pupils and teachers in classes 5 thru 12. An educational lab will be created where pupils are able to grasp a general understanding of basic physical principles of nanoswitches as well as today's cooperative and communicative nature of scientific work. The educational lab will be complemented by teacher training courses, a research centre for highly motivated pupils and various activities reaching out to the general public.
