St Helena SHINEs

copy-of-shine.jpgKristin: The St Helena Innovative Nanotechnology Education (SHINE) program was launched by the Minister for Education, The Honourable John Lenders MLC at the St Helena Secondary College Science and Technology Centre on Friday 18th May.  The opening created a real buzz at the school with students on hand to explain demonstrations and examples of student work; to showcase recent art projects using images of nanogold and shape memory alloys; and even a jazz band to welcome visitors.  The launch included the official launch of the nanotechnology curricula, the opening of the NanoVic laboratory and the new SHINE website – where tecahers can access copies of the curriculum.  I have thoroughly enjoyed contributing to SHINE.  Congratulations to the school on their successful launch of this innovative program.
