Watch episodes of "Report from the NanoDesk"
The pioneering educational curriculum, and innovative research and development at CNSE, recognized as the world's leading college for nanotechnology, are showcased each month in a segment entitled "Report from the NanoDesk" on the PBS television program ‘New York Now,' a statewide television program shown on PBS.
"Report from the NanoDesk," which is produced and hosted by WMHT Educational Telecommunications's (WMHT) Susan Arbetter, examines the public policy implications of the technology advances being enabled by nanotechnology - described by the National Nanotechnology Initiative as "leading to the next Industrial Revolution" - through segments featuring CNSE's cutting-edge research and development and next-generation curriculum.
Monthly segments include interviews with CNSE's executives and faculty, as well as video from inside the cleanrooms of CNSE's more than $14 billion Albany NanoTech Complex, the most advanced research enterprise at any university in the world. Segments also include guests from a variety of sectors discussing the public policy impact of those technologies on critical areas of society - from energy and the environment to education and health care, among others - in what is believed to be the first television segment to highlight the influence of innovative nanoscale technologies on public policy.
"New York Now," which is New York State's number one in-depth public affairs program featuring news, interviews and analysis from the Capital, has been recognized in the past year with the Edward R. Murrow Award and the National Educational Telecommunications Association ("NETA") Award for Best News and Public Affairs Program.
Aside from its home on WMHT in the Greater Capital Region, "New York Now" is also available on the following stations: WNET, New York City; WNED, Buffalo and Toronto; WXXI, Rochester; WCNY, Syracuse; WPBS, Watertown; WSKG, Binghamton; WLIW, Long Island and Mountain Lake Public Broadcasting, Plattsburgh.
