    The NCLT professional development plan is based on both the National Science Standards and current research. Successful professional development requires:

    1. Learning essential science content through the perspectives and methods of inquiry;
    2. Integrating knowledge of science, learning, pedagogy and students, and applying that knowledge to teaching;
    3. Building understanding and ability for lifelong learning; and
    4. A coherent and integrated program.
    The NCLT Professional Development experience is designed with the following goals:
    1. To provide 7-12 grade science teachers with an enhanced understanding of nanoscience;
    2. To introduce teachers to inquiry-based methods for teaching nanoscience;
    3. To provide 7-12 grade science teachers with a collection of suitable classroom activities;
    4. To assist teachers in developing their own nanoscience activities and projects for classroom use;
    5. To enhance teachers’ awareness of the connections between nanoscience and the traditional sciences of chemistry, physics, biology, earth science, and mathematics.
