Looking ahead with a clear vision and aiming at the active participation of each European country in the global educational development, it is considered appropriate for the students of the modern European school to be informed and to deal, in essence, with nanotechnology, which is one of the most important dimensions of the 4th industrial revolution. This educational package explores the basic concepts of Nanotechnology (e.g. nanoscale, nanomaterials), its applications in medicine, pharmacology, industry, cosmetics and related issues (e.g. economic) that arise or are likely to arise in the future as well as possible ways to address these problems. The 16 information cards of the package give a good overview of a) the nanotechnology applications, b) its relationship to various diseases, the environment and the economic development, c) the nanotoxicity in plants. 11 Story Cards present its history, potential hazards of nanotechnology to human health and the environment and specific applications of nanotechnology related to medicine and to other fields of human action. There are 10 question cards that help students to get acquainted with the topic of Nanotechnology. A 9.24-minute video lecture presents the main aspects (positive and negative) of Νanotechnology use in our era.
