We present a review of literature that gives a snapshot of an emerging field inscience education: “nanoeducation”, with a focus on secondary education. Our corpus was maid of 20 articles from science education peerreviewed journals and conference proceedings. We identified four strands of research: reflections prior to curriculum development on nanosciences and nanotechnologies; studies on students’ conceptualisations of nanorelated concepts; use of haptic tools to teach nanosciences and nanotechnologies; and professional development for secondary school teachers. We also pointed the lack of research regarding nanosciences and nanotechnologies as a socioscientific issue.
