Each year, several elementary, middle school, and high schools have entered science projects in a program called ExploraVision, which is sponsored by the Toshiba Corporation and the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA). The ExploraVision is designed for K-12 students of all interest, skill, and ability levels. ExploraVision encourages students to create and explore a vision of future technology by combining their imaginations with the tools of science.
Since 1992, more than 200,000 students from across the United States and Canada have competed in ExploraVision. For many of the participants ExploraVision can be the beginning of a lifelong adventure in science, as students develop higher-order thinking skills and learn to think about their role in the future.
Each year there are several schools that explore a future vision of nanotechnology. As an example, in Chapter 5, the author interviewed students who were winners of the ExploraVision Program. There have been other ExploraVision nanotechnology winners over the past years. Here is a short list of some of those schools that participated in the ExploraVision program.
