More Than 1,000 People Explore Nanotechnology During CNSE Community Day At UAlbany Nanocollege

Albany, NY | Posted on November 7th, 2010

More than 1,000 people, including children, adults and families from throughout upstate New York, converged today on the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering ("CNSE") of the University at Albany to participate in CNSE Community Day, a highlight of CNSE's unprecedented community and educational outreach initiative known as NANOvember.

Tours of the state-of-the-art cleanroom facilities at CNSE's $6.5 billion Albany NanoTech Complex - the most advanced research enterprise in the academic world - along with presentations, interactive demonstrations and hands-on activities highlighted CNSE Community Day. The event showcased the exciting 21st century innovations being enabled by nanotechnology, as well as the global leadership of the UAlbany NanoCollege in the science described by the National Nanotechnology Initiative as "leading to the next Industrial Revolution."

Part of "NEXSTEP," or "Nanotechnology Explorations for Science, Training and Education Promotion," NANOvember represents a partnership between CNSE and KeyBank to promote greater understanding of the changing economic and business environment in the Capital Region and New York State being driven by nanotechnology.

"The UAlbany NanoCollege is delighted to see the strong interest and significant participation at CNSE Community Day," said Dr. Alain E. Kaloyeros, Senior Vice President and Chief Executive Officer of CNSE. "We appreciate the support of our community-minded partner, KeyBank, in presenting this event as part of CNSE's NANOvember initiative, which underscores the growing interest in nanotechnology and provides a firsthand look at the opportunities this emerging science offers for world-class education, groundbreaking research and exciting high-tech careers."

"NANOvember is an exciting extension of the NEXSTEP initiative and its effort to help people understand the importance of nanotechnology and how and why nanotechnology is changing the Capital Region," said Jeffrey Stone, president, Capital Region, KeyBank N.A. "In the current economic landscape, this is a bright spot, as nanotech throughout Tech Valley is playing a large role in attracting high-tech jobs, companies and investment to our region and state."

The annual celebration of NANOvember also includes the CNSE Community Lecture Series, held on four consecutive Mondays, and a host of new events this year, including: "Nano at the Y" on Saturday, November 13, in which CNSE faculty will visit seven Capital District YMCA branches to demonstrate innovative nanotechnology research; "NanoCSI" on Thursday, November 18, an interactive presentation that highlights the use of nanotechnology in crime scene investigations; and "Nanotechnology and the Video Game Revolution" on Saturday, November 20, which outlines the impact of nanotechnology on the evolution of video games and features interactive computer gaming terminals.

A complete list of events and activities planned during NANOvember is available at cnse.albany.edu/events/nanovember.html.
