Two good ideas
Hopefully some substantive legislator will pick up the ball, and include nanotechnology as required science education for our kids. Texas -- particularly Houston -- has the chance to be a leader in nanotech. This certainly wouldn't hurt. It'd also help us keep up with our southern neighbors: Mexico has already added nanotech education to its curriculum. (Hat tip: Glenn Reynolds)
While we're at it, economics should also really be required in high school.
Economics yes. But better economics than what I got.
Nanotech....I don't think so. Tell me how you'd teach it. what are the goals? objectives?
as a subject fad, it ranks right up there with "computer literacy" from 23 or so years ago.
OTOH, if you want to figure out ways to incorporate it into chemistry and physics classes. yeah. that's a good idea.
