UAlbany NanoCollege and City School District of Albany recognize 16 newest graduates of groundbreaking 'NanoHigh" program

Albany, NY | Posted on June 9th, 2011

A first-of-its-kind initiative designed to engage high school students in the emerging field of nanotechnology reached another milestone today when the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) of the University at Albany and the City School District of Albany (CSDA) recognized 16 Albany High School (AHS) students who successfully completed the groundbreaking "NanoHigh" program.

Believed to be the first program of its kind at a public school anywhere in the country, NanoHigh connects students with the science described by the National Nanotechnology Initiative as "leading to the next Industrial Revolution." Since its inception four years ago, 75 AHS students have received certificates for successful completion of the program, which was designed by CNSE and CSDA to enhance students' opportunities to take advantage of a growing number of nanotechnology-related careers in the Capital Region and across New York State.

Through classroom work at AHS and hands-on laboratory activities at CNSE's Albany NanoTech Complex, students explore the promise and potential of nanotechnology to enable advanced technologies that will positively impact fields ranging from electronics, energy and the environment to health care, military and information technology, among many others.

"On behalf of the UAlbany NanoCollege, I congratulate the Albany High School students for their successful completion of the NanoHigh program, and commend them for their enthusiasm, passion and commitment to this rich educational experience," said Dr. Alain E. Kaloyeros, Senior Vice President and Chief Executive Officer of CNSE. "Supported by the strong partnership between CNSE and the City School District of Albany, these students have taken a unique step toward a bright future in the innovation economy of the 21st century."

"With each passing year we are recognizing more and more just how integral nanoscience and nanotechnology are to our future - worldwide and right here in the Capital Region thanks to the leadership of Dr. Kaloyeros and the University at Albany NanoCollege," said City School District of Albany Superintendent Raymond Colucciello, Ed.D. "Albany High School students are so fortunate to have the opportunity to get an inside view and hands-on experience with this cutting-edge science and technology that continues to transform the way we live and work."

Throughout the year, AHS students engaged in a variety of hands-on activities that utilized CNSE's state-of-the-art laboratories and world-class cleanrooms, exploring integrated circuit technologies through nanoscale patterning and fabrication; nanobiomedical applications, including innovations in nanomedicine and forensic DNA fingerprinting; clean energy technologies, such as solar cells and ultracapacitors for energy storage; and nanoeconomics.
