Home > Press > CNSE Community Day draws record crowd of more than 1,200 people to explore nanotechnology

Abstract:
A record crowd of more than 1,200 visitors of all ages from throughout New York State received an inside look at the exciting world of nanotechnology today when they participated in Community Day at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) of the University at Albany, one of the highlights of CNSE's one-of-a-kind community and educational outreach initiative known as "NANOvember."

CNSE Community Day draws record crowd of more than 1,200 people to explore nanotechnology

Albany, NY | Posted on November 5th, 2011

From tours of CNSE's state-of-the-art cleanroom facilities and gowning demonstrations, to lively presentations and booths showcasing nanotechnology education and research, to hands-on activities for children, the event served to underscore the growing impact of nanotechnology innovations in addressing the most critical issues of the 21st century, including green energy, a cleaner environment, advanced health care and improved homeland safety and security.

Community Day also demonstrated the recognized global leadership of CNSE and New York State in this emerging science described by the National Nanotechnology Initiative as "leading to the next Industrial Revolution." Fueled by a pioneering educational and research paradigm, CNSE is firmly established as the world's most advanced university-driven enterprise, with more than $12 billion in high-tech investments and a growing footprint throughout upstate New York.

"We are delighted to welcome the largest crowd ever to attend CNSE's Community Day, and thrilled to see such strong interest in nanotechnology and exceptional enthusiasm for New York's exciting nanotechnology initiative centered at the UAlbany NanoCollege," said Dr. Alain E. Kaloyeros, Senior Vice President and Chief Executive Officer of CNSE. "Guided by the pioneering vision, consummate leadership and critical investment of Governor Cuomo and Assembly Speaker Silver, we look forward to further building on this unparalleled asset to help drive unprecedented educational, technological and economic opportunity throughout New York State."

CNSE's NANOvember schedule includes two exciting events being held for the first time: the "Nano Discovery" collaboration with Police Athletic League (PAL) chapters in Albany and Troy on Saturday, November 12, and the Capital Region Nanotechnology Showcase presented in partnership with the Times Union Classroom Enrichment Program on Saturday, November 19. Again this year, CNSE's popular Community Lecture Series is being held on four consecutive Monday nights.

In addition, CNSE will launch a unique display at Crossgates Mall in Albany: "NanoQuin World," which will demonstrate the numerous ways in which nanotechnology has become an integral part of today's society.

A complete list of events and activities planned during NANOvember, along with pre-registration, are available at www.cnse.albany.edu/Outreach/NANOvember.aspx.
