UW-Eau Claire, UW-Stout and the Chippewa Valley Technical College have coordinated a series of events throughout the day. Activities include:

• 8:30 to 11 a.m., Fall Creek Elementary School. Dr. Doug Dunham, director of the UW-Eau Claire Materials Science Center, and student Patrese Hoffman, will present "An Elementary Introduction to Nanotechnology" to fourth-graders. The presentation will focus on materials science and nanotechnology.

• 11:15 a.m. to 12:10 p.m., Web cast. Dr. Forrest S. Schultz of UW-Stout and students will lead a "Nanoscience and Nanotechnology" Web cast. They will present developments in nanotechnology driven solar coating research. It will include an overview of the NanoSTEM Partnership among UW-Stout, CVTC and UW-Eau Claire.

• 1 to 2:30 p.m. "An Introduction to Nanotechnology" will be presented to fourth-graders at Osseo-Fairchild Elementary School.
