1 Remote Access to Hi-tech Equipment From Your Classroom to Ours Sebastien Maeder

2 Outline What is Remote Access? The Method vs. the Goal The role within NACK Why should we try? Confines of Classroom Characterization Remote Access as a Resource What can we use it for? What tools are available? How do we get started? How does it work? Instructional Videos Requirements Remote Ready Labs Video Learning Modules Request Form Sending Samples Running the Tools Feedback Conclusion

3 What is Remote Access? Bringing nano-scale characterization into your classroom by using audio, video, and expertise to collaborate with students Teaching and learning the fundamentals Background, tools, and processes Performing relevant hands-on lab activities with instant qualitative outcomes and connecting them with remote, quantitative observations

4 The Method vs. the Goal Offering remote control of expensive, otherwise inaccessible instrumentation, is merely the method The goal is to stimulate student interest and increase understanding in the technological sciences Sharing our enthusiasm and knowledge Making the experience relevant and engaging Providing an immersive experience Letting students become involved scientists instead of spectators

5 The Role Within NACK The mission of NACK is to enable nanotechnology education Partnership/Cooperative model Remote Access can play a role Secondary Schools 2 Year Community and Technical Colleges NACK Remote Access 4 Year Colleges and Universities

6 Why Should We Try? Confines of Classroom Characterization Tools Maintenance Service Contracts Warranties Cost $30,000 to $600,000 per instrument Time Develop labs Become an Expert Teach Background and Operation Bottlenecks....

7 Why Should We Try? A Teachers Resource Labs and learning objectives are already developed Efficient use of very expensive resources No overhead or maintenance REMOTE ACCESS Reduced preparation time Increased student motivation to learn Links teachers to university research facilities and personnel Provides multiple learning motifs

8 Why Should We Try? A Student Resource Hands-On Experience Exposure to otherwise inaccessible equipment Provides relevance, background, and principles Shows that scientists are real people REMOTE ACCESS Increased student motivation to learn Links students to university research facilities and university personnel Engaging, holistic approach

9 What Can We Use It For? REMOTE ACCESS Verify/Demonstrate learned concepts Supplementing your own equipment Hands-On access by your laboratory students Classroom demonstration s Enhancing scientific interest and knowledge ANYTHING

10 What Tools Are Available? Optical Microscope Scanning Probe Microscope UV-Vis Spectrophotometer FESEM with EDS Profilometer
