Albany, NY | Posted on March 28th, 2013

In support of Governor Andrew Cuomo's educational blueprint in providing world-class opportunities to encourage our next generation of innovators amid New York's growing nanotechnology sector, SUNY's College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE), CNSE's Children's Museum of Science and Technology (CNSE CMOST), Trinity Alliance of the Capital Region, and public libraries in four counties will partner to offer unique programs and hands-on activities to engage children and their families in nanotechnology as part of the national celebration of "NanoDays" 2013.

"By taking an innovative approach to sparking an interest among young people in the exciting science of nanotechnology, SUNY's NanoCollege is continuing to build a critical pipeline for both higher education and the high-tech workforce in New York," said SUNY Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher. "I commend these proactive educational outreach initiatives being undertaken as part of national NanoDays, which underscore the expanding opportunities in our state's fastest-growing industry."

"Spurred by Governor Andrew Cuomo's vision and leadership, New York has pioneered a winning strategy whereby educational events like national ‘NanoDays' 2013, coupled with world-class nanotechnology research and the attraction of the world's leading high-tech companies, have established the New New York as ‘the place to be' for a seat at the 21st century table of high-tech innovation," said Dr. Alain Kaloyeros, CNSE Senior Vice President and CEO. "CNSE is thrilled to partner with local organizations to stimulate excitement and spark further interest in nanotechnology, particularly among our next generation of scientists."

The series of events planned by CNSE for "NanoDays" 2013, which runs from March 30 to April 7, will provide children with a chance to learn about bacteria and make their own molecular motor; test model fuel cell cars and experiment with photovoltaic panels; examine current and future applications of nanotechnology in medicine; explore and build polymer chains; and gown up in a "bunny suit" to experience what it feels like to work in one of CNSE's state-of-the-art cleanrooms. At each location, children and teenagers will also be able to investigate hydrogels, create gummy capsules and UV bracelets, and even learn about invisibility.

CNSE and CNSE CMOST will partner with Capital Region public libraries to present programs throughout the week, beginning with the Saratoga Springs Public Library on Monday, April 1, and continuing with the Schenectady County Public Library on Tuesday, April 2; Albany Public Library on Wednesday, April 3; and Troy Public Library on Friday, April 5. Activities will also take place at Trinity Alliance of the Capital Region on Thursday, April 4, and will culminate with a "NanoDays" celebration on Saturday, April 6, at CNSE CMOST's location in the Rensselaer Technology Park.

"NanoDays" 2013 is a national effort to raise awareness and understanding about nanotechnology and is organized by the Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network (NISE Net) with funding from the National Science Foundation. As they lead the hands-on activities and demonstrations, CNSE's faculty, researchers, and students emphasize relevant, age-appropriate scientific concepts that both entertain and engage.
