UAlbany NanoCollege hosts Summer NanoCamp in partnership with Children’s Museum of Science and Technology
Sixteen middle-school students received a unique firsthand look at the exciting world of nanotechnology when they attended Summer NanoCamp at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) of the University at Albany on July 10, part of a collaboration between CNSE and the Children’s Museum of Science and Technology (CMOST).
The CNSE-CMOST Summer NanoCamp is designed to give students between the ages of 11 and 14 an introduction into how nanotechnology is increasingly shaping their future.
Participants received an introductory presentation on nanotechnology; toured CNSE’s world-class Albany NanoTech Complex, which is the most advanced research enterprise in the academic world; and had the opportunity to engage in several hands-on activities, including a cleanroom gowning demonstration, innovations in nanomedicine, and the role of polymers in nanotechnology.
