Through the following key select activities, students learn how nanotechnology is revolutionizing the approach to drug delivery and medical diagnostics. They are engaged in a simulated, as well as actual synthesis of alginate nanoparticles. Each activity prepares students for the Design Project, in which they are challenged to design a prototype nanomedicine with an optimum time-release profile.
MWM will give students an opportunity to understand the world around them in a way they have never experienced before. The modules promote an awareness of the roles science and technology play in society and guide students to take increased control of their work.
