August 26 2005, Reported by Melinda Vogt

The NCLT 2005 Professional Development (PD) Summer workshops were attended by 25 participants at 3 locations (Northwestern, Purdue University and University of Illinois at Champaign Urbana).

The teachers reported the workshops to be very valuable and useful in their classrooms:

"I was given new knowledge of very current technologies that will be useful in interesting students in the study of science. I was provided with resources which deliver science curriculum using diverse methods and medium."

"It was very interesting to discuss how simulation could be used to educate students of all activities – ADHD, LD, EMA, etc." "I really enjoyed the workshop. It had a great balance of activities (i.e., lectures, tours, labs)."

"I could see no way to improve this workshop except maybe lengthen it."

"…thanks again for all the work you did in putting the program together. It is without a doubt the most intellectually/professionally stimulating program I have ever attended."

Special Thank you to our Teachers: The NCLT PD team would like to thank all our teachers who participanted in the summer PD Workshops. We appreciate your willingness and enthusiasm for learning and teaching Nanoscale Science and look forward to working with each of you throughout the school year.
