Distribution Networks

We are building our distirbution network for NanoMission to ensure that every teacher and student that can possibly benefit from it will find out about it and get access to it. Some of our distribution channels include :

The Association for Science Education
Promoting excellance in science teaching and learning.
www.ase.org.uk
The Association for Science Education (ASE) is the professional body for those involved in science education at all levels, including school technicians and student teachers. The Association promotes high quality science education and fosters the professional development of its members. The website contains details about ASE, its membership, online bookshop, Inset events and the ASE’s journals. The ASE organises an annual conference, and both regional and global activities. They also participate in ‘Science Across the World’, a programme which raises awareness of the impact of science on people’s lives.

SEMTA – The Sector Skills Council for Science, Engineering and Manufacturing Technologies.
www.semta.org.uk
SEMTA covers some 100,000 companies employing 2,500,000 people in the UK. Led by the sector, for the sector, SEMTA is working closely with its Sector Strategy Groups to drive improvements in productivity by transforming skills in : Aerospace Biotechnology Electrical engineering Electronics, including semi- conductors Engineering metal products Forensic Science Mathematics Mechanical engineering Meteorology Motor vehicle manufacture Nanotechnology Optical manufacture Pharmaceuticals Shipbuilding/ship repair/boat building and repair.

SETNET – Science, Engineering, Technology and Matechmatics Network
www.setnet.org.uk
SETNET is the Science Engineering Technology Mathematics Network and has almost 100 member organisations representing Government, industry, the engineering professional institutions, education and education charities. It is one of the outcomes of a Government initiative – Action for Engineering. SETNET is about ensuring that there is a flow of well motivated, high quality people from schools who have an interest in, and an understanding of, engineering related subjects. SETNET aims to enhance and enrich the science curriculum and to bring about collaboration between various organisations to influence the teaching of the subject. Information is provided on various aspects of curriculum support, including a searchable resource list. A series of SETPOINTs has been established throughout the UK operating as a focus for information about resources, schemes and initiatives. Links to the SETPOINTs are provided.

SCENTA – Careers & more in Science, Engineering & Technology
www.scenta.org.uk
News articles in engineering and technology, plus details of events, courses, training opportunities and jobs are provided here by leading sources and members of the industrial, academic and institutional, science, engineering and technology community. Resource listings, discussion forums, and information about professional and research awards are also available. scenta was initiated by The Engineering and Technology Board (the etb), and provides a gateway to the best SET resources on the web. scenta content providers include the British Computer Society, CIBSE, The Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), SEMTA, NESTA, ECUK, Intute, ICE, IIE, the Royal Academy of Engineering and Year in Industry.
