Nanoscience for high schoolers

Abstract:
It's in your iPod. Your sunscreen. Your baseball bat. Nanoscience technology is everywhere. This summer, Dakota County Technical College will give high school students the opportunity to explore the world at the molecular and atomic level -- the nanoscale.

The four-day program held at the DCTC campus in Rosemount will consist of a lecture program to introduce science concepts at the atomic level and cover practical examples of how nanoscience is impacting our lives today.

As a supplement to the lecture, students will participate in a series of labs where they will create gold nanoparticles and nanowires, study non-Newtonian fluids and surface tension, and evaluate the mechanical properties of different materials.
