UAlbany NanoCollege Hosts K-12 Students from Throughout Tech Valley for NanoCareer Day

Albany, NY | Posted on May 10th, 2009

NanoCareer Day is designed to address the critical effort to prepare students for a growing
number of nanotechnology-related career opportunities in the Capital Region and New York State - and the national need to stimulate an interest in math and science among America's younger generation. The daylong event included presentations by CNSE faculty on the emerging science of nanotechnology and the career opportunities it offers; hands-on activities highlighting the exciting advances enabled by nanotechnology research and development; and, tours of CNSE's $4.5 billion Albany NanoTech Complex.

Participating schools, and their counties, included: Averill Park High School (Rensselaer), Cohoes Middle School (Albany), Hudson Falls High School (Washington), Rensselaer Middle School (Rensselaer), Maple Avenue Middle School, Saratoga Springs School District (Saratoga), Glens Falls Central School District (Warren), Stephen and Harriet Myers Middle School, Albany City School District (Albany), Union College Science and Technology Entry Program - Oneida Middle School, Central Park Middle School, Guilderland High School, Notre Dame-Bishop Gibbons High School, Schenectady High School (Schenectady), and Academy of Holy Names (Albany).
