LAUSD Adopts Omni Nano’s Digital Textbook
The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) is second‐largest school district in the nation, serving over half a million students each year. There has been a district‐approved nanotechnology elective course for a number of years. However, it has been difficult to instruct because there were no suitable educational materials available… until now! Enrolled LAUSD students can simply log into their online Schoology portal to start learning nano now.
Our comprehensive package of educational resources (including its customizable syllabus, digital textbook and lecture slides, and hundreds of assessment questions with feedback) has been approved as the first and only standardized curriculum for this class. This will count as a college preparatory elective “G” course (in terms of the UC A‐G requirements) and will appear on students’ transcripts as “NANO TECH AB.”
SoCalGas is leading the way! They have generously donated 200 of our digital textbooks to LAUSD students in the San Fernando Valley. With this donation, SoCalGas is inspiring hundreds of local students to pursue careers of the future as scientists, engineers, and entrepreneurs.
