Abstract

This study developes an interdisciplinary curriculum for the Nano-science major system in college within core natural science majors, e.g. physics, chemistry, and biology. The nano-science major, currently one of the major research areas in both applied and pure sciences, was considered as an alternate solution to the problem that many students, not only in college but also in high school and even in junior high school, tend to avoid studying science subjects as their majors nowadays. To support this research, we sent and collected questionnaires from 600 randomly selected students in three groups: science majors in college, in high school, and in junior high school. For the data analysis, SPSS/PC+ program, version 10.0, was used. This investigation revealed that after providing some fundamental information about nano-science to those who primarily answered that they had a negative impression about science subjects, 26.8 to 55.1% students among those groups showed significant interest in nano-science.
