Abstract:
The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) of the University at Albany hosted 16 students and three teachers from a Montessori School in Monterrey, Mexico on January 29 as part of a week-long student exchange program with the Woodland Hills Montessori School in North Greenbush.

UAlbany NanoCollege Hosts Students from Monterrey, Mexico in Unique Exchange Program

Albany, NY | Posted on January 31st, 2009

The students listened to an overview of the emerging field of nanotechnology given by Dr. Vincent LaBella, Associate Professor of Nanoscience. They were led on a tour of CNSE's Albany NanoTech Complex by Equipment Evaluation and Support Specialist Steve Stewart, who also offered a demonstration on how to gown up in the "bunny suits" worn in CNSE's high-tech cleanrooms. The visit concluded with a hands-on activity led by Assistant Professors of Nanobioscience Dr. Yubing Xie and Dr. Magnus Bergkvist, in which students built a "gummy worm" polymer chain.

"We are delighted to have partnered with the Woodland Hills Montessori School to give students from Monterrey, Mexico a chance to learn about nanotechnology and, through the UAlbany NanoCollege, the global leadership of New York State in this exciting field that will define the future careers of young people around the world," said Diana Dumesnil, CNSE Manager, Strategic and Educational Outreach. "CNSE is firmly committed to raising awareness of the benefits of nanotechnology through a wide array of innovative educational programs that inspire students to pursue careers in science and technology."

The visit to CNSE was one of a series of activities designed to highlight important and exciting places in the Capital Region and New York State.

About UAlbany CNSE
The UAlbany CNSE is the first college in the world dedicated to research, development, education, and deployment in the emerging disciplines of nanoscience, nanoengineering, nanobioscience, and nanoeconomics. In May 2007, it was ranked as the world's number one college for nanotechnology and microtechnology in the Annual College Ranking by Small Times magazine. CNSE's Albany NanoTech complex is the most advanced research enterprise of its kind at any university in the world: a $4.5 billion, 450,000-square-foot complex that attracts corporate partners from around the world and offers students a one-of-a-kind academic experience. The UAlbany NanoCollege houses the only fully-integrated, 300mm wafer, computer chip pilot prototyping and demonstration line within 65,000 square feet of Class 1 capable cleanrooms. More than 2,000 scientists, researchers, engineers, students, and faculty work on site at CNSE's Albany NanoTech complex, from companies including IBM, AMD, SEMATECH, Toshiba, ASML, Applied Materials, Tokyo Electron, Vistec Lithography and Freescale. An expansion currently underway will increase the size of CNSE's Albany NanoTech complex to over 800,000 square feet, including over 80,000 square feet of Class 1 capable cleanroom space, to house over 2,500 scientists, researchers, engineers, students, and faculty by mid-2009.
