Nobelprize.org funds much of its educational outreach using donations received from sponsors, and previous newsletters have highlighted many productions presented with such support. We also undertake educational initiatives in collaboration with the sponsors, and this first newsletter of 2010 is dedicated to introducing one of them: the Honeywell-Nobel Initiative.
Since 2006, this collaborative programme has been bringing Nobel Laureates in Physics and Chemistry face-to-face with students around the globe. At each of the six annual events Laureates spend two days interacting with students on campus, through a series of lectures, Q&A forums and impromptu discussions. These interactions are captured on video and delivered free to a global audience via the website for the Initiative, Honeywellscience.com, which presents over 40 hours of video featuring 17 Laureates from previous events. Play the video podcast on the homepage for a quick guide to the site.
For the first three events of 2010, the Honeywell-Nobel Initiative (HNI) will be visiting India, the United States and China. The links below give a flavour of the content you can find on Honeywellscience.com related to these spring events, as well pointing to examples of the wealth of information about the three participating Nobel Laureates available on Nobelprize.org.
