Nano Games

Interactive Materials World Modules

i-MWM is MWM’s web-based interactive multimedia STEM curricula for use on computers, laptops, and mobile devices for learning any place or time.

This new program will have three major benefits:

  1. Broader access.
  2. Interactive learning to support personalized self-study and classroom learning.
  3. Rapid assessment feedback for teachers.

Key Features of i-MWM

The Latest Research and Technology Applications

Today’s laboratory concepts will become tomorrow’s products. The i-modules are continuously updated by leading researchers in materials science and nanoscience to prepare students for the jobs of the future. Students learn how basic science concepts can solve global problems.

Vertically Integrated Learning

Content spans grade levels, from elementary school to the community college and vocational levels. Fundamental nanoscience concepts are introduced early on and reinforced over time. Teachers can take online professional development courses or refresh their understanding before preparing their lessons. This approach bridges gaps across grade levels to better prepare students for college and careers!

Next Generation Inquiry-and-Design

Our proven inquiry and design methodology has been enhanced with multimedia tools to better prepare students for 21st Century STEM careers.

Just like professional scientists and engineers, students can now:

  • Study concepts on their own before performing lab experiments. (Interactive games let them explore and intuitively grasp a concept; then a narrated tutorial introduces the concept more fully.)
  • Use advanced animations to visualize the nanoscale and understand complex phenomena (3-D, time-dependent, etc.)
  • Use interactive simulations to analyze laboratory data, generate mathematically accurate models, and ask “what if?” questions that might lead to new discoveries.

Personalized Learning and Assessment

Mobile device readySome students learn best by reading - others by seeing, hearing, or doing. Students can study independently at their own pace using the tools that are best suited to their own personal learning style. Most of the content in the i-modules is presented in multiple formats – students can read content, listen to and watch videos, and interact with simulations and games. Rapid-feedback assessments let students track their own progress and let their teachers know when they need support. In this way, students can take responsibility for their own learning and be better prepared for class.

Student Collaboration Platform

Today’s students love to stay connected online! Why not use this this behavior to prepare them for future careers? Employers want students who can communicate, collaborate, and innovate effectively. The i-MWM platform allows students to brainstorm ideas, join design competitions, and discuss the pro and cons of different design solutions with their peers around the country.
