Teachers tune in to RPI's nanotech network

Abstract:
Building networks is key to high-tech communication and person-to-person interactions. While finding out more about the practical applications of nanotechnology at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, NYSUT members had an opportunity to connect with RPI's researchers, faculty and students and view a visionary new cultural center on the campus.

The 50 Capital District educators were greeted by RPI Vice President John Kolb, who discussed the uses of RPI's new Computational Center for Nanotechnology Innovation, one of the world's most powerful university-based supercomputing centers.

They also toured the new glass-encased Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center. This futuristic facility presents the arts in a building constructed using cutting-edge materials and technology, and it's linked to the massive RPI supercomputer so programs can span the physical and virtual worlds.

Pam Caouette, a Columbia High School science teacher and member of the East Greenbush Teachers Association, Rensselaer County, was impressed by the performing arts center's 3-D capabilities and looks forward to its applications to help teach scienc
