Albany, NY | Posted on November 9th, 2012

More than 100 elementary and middle-school students in Albany will explore the exciting world of nanotechnology when they participate in the "Nano Discovery Program" on Saturday, November 10 presented by the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) of the University at Albany in partnership with Trinity Alliance of the Capital Region (Trinity Alliance).

The program will be held from 10 a.m. to noon at the Trinity Center, 15 Trinity Place in Albany. It is part of CNSE's fifth annual celebration of NANOvember, which is designed to showcase the growing impact of nanotechnology on society and the global leadership of the NanoCollege and New York State in the field that's "leading to the next Industrial Revolution."

Working in collaboration with Trinity Alliance, CNSE will offer presentations, engaging demonstrations, and a host of hands-on activities introducing students to nanotechnology.

The children will take part in a cleanroom gowning demonstration that shows how researchers dress in the "bunny suits" worn in CNSE's state-of-the-art cleanrooms. They will also have opportunities to build polymer chains and make a wearable "DNA bracelet"; explore their own cells and compare them to other organisms; investigate nanomotors that propel living bacteria through the environment; and learn how clean energy can power our future through hands-on renewable energy models.

The events will provide excellent photo, video and interview opportunities. Media coverage is welcome.

About UAlbany NanoCollege
The UAlbany CNSE is the first college in the world dedicated to education, research, development and deployment in the emerging disciplines of nanoscience, nanoengineering, nanobioscience and nanoeconomics. With more than $14 billion in high-tech investments, CNSE represents the world’s most advanced university-driven research enterprise, offering students a one-of-a-kind academic experience and providing over 300 corporate partners with access to an unmatched ecosystem for leading-edge R&D and commercialization of nanoelectronics and nanotechnology innovations. CNSE’s footprint spans upstate New York, including its Albany NanoTech Complex, an 800,000-square-foot megaplex with the only fully-integrated, 300mm wafer, computer chip pilot prototyping and demonstration line within 85,000 square feet of Class 1 capable cleanrooms. More than 2,700 scientists, researchers, engineers, students and faculty work here, from companies including IBM, Intel, GlobalFoundries, SEMATECH, Samsung, TSMC, Toshiba, Applied Materials, Tokyo Electron, ASML and Lam Research. An expansion now underway, part of which will house the world’s first Global 450mm Consortium, will add nearly 500,000 square feet of next-generation infrastructure, an additional 50,000 square feet of Class 1 capable cleanrooms, and more than 1,000 scientists, researchers and engineers from CNSE and global corporations. In addition, CNSE’s Solar Energy Development Center in Halfmoon provides a prototyping and demonstration line for next-generation CIGS thin-film solar cells, supporting its leadership of the U.S. Photovoltaic Manufacturing Consortium (PVMC). CNSE’s Smart System Technology and Commercialization Center of Excellence (STC) in Rochester offers state-of-the-art capabilities for MEMS fabrication and packaging. CNSE also co-founded and manages operations at the Computer Chip Commercialization Center at SUNYIT in Utica and is a co-founder of the Nanotechnology Innovation and Commercialization Excelerator in Syracuse.
