IN-VSEE - Interactive Nano-Visualization in Science & Engineering Education

:: Interesting post from the latest issue of the The NSDL Scout Report for the Physical Sciences about a consortium called IN-VSEE:

"IN-VSEE is a consortium of university and industry scientists and engineers, community college and high school science faculty and museum educators with a common vision of creating an interactive World Wide Web (WWW) site to develop a new educational thrust based on remote operation of advanced microscopes and nano-fabrication tools coupled to powerful surface characterization methods." After reviewing a summary of the organization, users can view animations, lecture videos, and other images that demonstrate the interdisciplinary nature of modern science. The website offers an abundance of educational modules covering many fundamental scientific principles. Teachers can find out about upcoming workshops. Anyone interested in the incorporation of new innovations into science education should visit this site.
