NTS aims to use ICTs as a tool to make the learning of science subjects more attractive and accessible. The project target groups are students from the general and vocational schools aged 13 to 18; teachers in science subject, plus college & university students attending science education courses (prospective school teachers in sciences)

The project will establish a Virtual Lab, as an experimental virtual aid to science learning. This will serve as a platform for science lessons, as a database of teaching materials and as a hub for science-learning-related graphic aids and recorded and illustrated appealing experiments on Nano-Tech. It will include a Nano-Science Center, presenting to learners and their in-service or future teachers the miracles of the nano-technologies. A program for a week Science Camp training including hands-on experiments and demonstrations will be developed and delivered through the VL, this is a good step as an approbation of the contents and functionalities of the virtual lab.

Students and teachers in secondary schools will be able to use and refine the VL, for lessons and sharing information. Their experiences will be recorded both on the Virtual Lab and in the Annual Nano-tech books. The VL will last long after the life of the project and will be an ongoing platform for sharing ideas, lesson plans and information. It will be updated and tested through inviting 10 teachers from the partner countries each year.
