Abstract:
Eighteen gifted and talented high school students are spending the week on the Vanderbilt campus learning how nanoscience - the science of the very small - is impacting everything from the formulation of concrete to drug delivery systems.

Gifted high school students learn about the power of the extremely small in Vanderbilt summer camp

Nashville, TN | Posted on June 30th, 2010

The nanoscience camp is one of a number of different camps being sponsored by the Vanderbilt Summer Academy. Originally, the organizers at the Vanderbilt Institute of Nanoscale Science and Engineering put a limit of only 12 students. But the program proved so popular that they increased the number to 18.

* WHAT: High school students observing demonstrations on how nanofibers can strengthen concrete; how lasers work; how to make quantum dots, a type of nanoparticle being used in a number of biomedical applications; how to make nanomaterials being used in drug delivery systems.
* WHERE: Stevenson Center and Featheringill Hall on the Vanderbilt Campus
* WHEN: Tuesday, June 28 and Wednesday, June 29 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
