College of the Canyons Selects NanoProfessor Nanoscience Education Program

Skokie, IL | Posted on September 13th, 2010

NanoProfessor, a division of NanoInk, Inc. focused on nanotechnology education, announced today that College of the Canyons in Santa Clarita, California has aquired the NanoProfessor Nanoscience Education Program to supplement its current nanotechnology educational offerings. College of the Canyons' nanotechnology program aims to provide participants with a working understanding of nanotechnology and practical exposure to conventional tools.

The NanoProfessor Program helps College of the Canyons meet this objective by providing additional instrumentation, curriculum, and hands-on labs expanding students' knowledge, skills and real-world experience needed to succeed in the rapidly growing nanotechnology industry.

"We are committed to providing a meaningful education with a curriculum that translates to the workforce," said Audrey Green, associate vice president of academic affairs at College of the Canyons. "The NanoProfessor Nanoscience Education Program expands our ability to provide students with a comprehensive curriculum created by industry experts and the hands-on experience needed to attract high tech employers to the skills our students possess."

"We are very pleased that College of the Canyons chose the NanoProfessor Nanoscience Education Program to complement its existing undergraduate nanotech educational offerings. The NanoProfessor Program will give College of the Canyons' students the opportunity to utilize the same equipment that many professionals in nanotechnology are using today," said Dean Hart, executive vice president at NanoInk. "Through this hands-on experience, students will gain the skills necessary to participate and even create the nanotechnology innovations of the future in the areas of medicine, materials, energy, electronics and biotechnology."

The NanoProfessor Nanoscience Education Program aims to expand hands-on nanotechnology education from the cleanrooms of research-based universities to undergraduate classrooms, and is especially well-suited to nanotechnology educational initiatives at the community college, technical institute, and undergraduate university level. The program alternates between classroom lectures and hands-on lab work and includes a 275-page textbook authored by leading nanotechnology experts, covering the topics of Nanotechnology Basics, NanoPhysics, NanoChemistry, NanoBiology and Environmental, Health, and Safety perspectives on nanotechnology.

During the hands-on lab experiments, students learn the fundamentals for building custom-engineered, nanoscale structures while working with state-of-the-art equipment including NanoInk's NLP 2000 Desktop NanoFabrication System, a student-friendly atomic force microscope (AFM), an advanced fluorescence microscope, and various chemical and biological materials used today within current and emerging nanotechnology applications.
