Abstract:

As student participation in science at Australian secondary schools continues to decline, St. Helena Secondary College has worked with Bridge 8 Pty Ltd. and Nanotechnology Victoria Ltd. to develop a nanotechnology programcalled SHINE, St. Helena Innovation Nanotechnology Education. The SHINE programis transforming traditional approaches to science education by providing nanotechnology as a dedicated six-month study elective, by engaging strongly with industry in curriculum development, and by incorporating a range of nanoscience and nanotechnology activities in other disciplines. This unique approach is already attracting students into science and related courses, as well as delivering valuable skills for the Victorian and Australian nanotechnology industries and engaging the broader community.
