LEGO2NANO UK-China Summer School 2015 Beijing, China

13 April 2015

Lego2NanoApplications are invited from UCL students to participate in the LEGO2NANO UK-China Summer School, to be held in Beijing, China, in September 2015. This is the fifth in a successful series of UK-China summer schools.

LEGO2NANO is a joint international project between UCL and partner universities in China aimed at making science accessible to school students by developing low cost tools, usually found in labs, and costing thousands.

In a series of summer schools, students from UCL and Chinese universities have been working to develop a low cost atomic force microscope (AFM) that can be assembled from cheaply available parts and could be provided to schools enabling students to study the Nano world.

If you have skills or interest in any of these areas, please do apply:

·      Designing, making or programming scientific instruments made from hacked components, LEGO and custom parts.

·      Developing data sharing software or apps.

·      Online learning applications for kids.

·      Tech entrepreneurship/open source economics.

·      Child psychology with a particular interest in hands-on learning.

This year we are inviting applications from people interested in developing the AFM, and/or a possible multifunctional devices, developing online data sharing applications or use of these devices in teaching. This will start in May/June/July, in preparation for the next two-week summer school in Beijing/Shanghai China at the beginning of September 2015.

Apply here by the deadline – this Wednesday 15th April:
