Abstract:
The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering ("CNSE") hosted more than 200 Girl Scouts from across upstate New York on November 21, as the Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York participated in "NanoExplorations, a program designed to provide a close-up look at the exciting world of nanotechnology.

UAlbany NanoCollege Hosts More than 200 Girl Scouts for ‘NanoExplorations’ Program

Albany, NY | Posted on November 23rd, 2009

The event was part of CNSE's celebration of NANOvember, a month-long community and educational outreach initiative that includes a series of programs and activities highlighting the increasing impact of nanotechnology and the global leadership of the UAlbany NanoCollege in the most important science of the 21st century.

The event included a presentation on the emerging science of nanotechnology and the career opportunities it offers; hands-on activities that showcased the role of nanotechnology research and development, with a special focus on clean and renewable energy technologies; a gowning demonstration that illustrated how researchers prepare to work in CNSE's state-of-the-art cleanrooms; and tours of CNSE's Albany NanoTech Complex, with tools and facilities that are unmatched at any university in the world.

NANOvember is part of "NEXSTEP," or "Nanotechnology Explorations for Science, Training and Education Promotion," spearheaded by CNSE's NanoEconomics Constellation in partnership with KeyBank. NEXSTEP is a collaborative program that includes educational initiatives designed to promote greater understanding of the region's changing economic and business environment driven by nanotechnology, with a special emphasis on children, citizens and community.
