Daily Gazette: Annual weeklong program introduces kids to nanotech
CAPITAL REGION — Students will have the chance to learn about fuel cells, polymers and other applications of nanotechnology when NanoDays 2012 kicks off Saturday.
This is the third year that the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering at the University at Albany is participating in the weeklong event. The college is collaborating with organizations such as the Schenectady Museum and Suits-Bueche Planetarium, the Children’s Museum of Science and Technology in Troy, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Albany and the Capital District YMCA’s Black and Latino Achievers Program to offer a full schedule of programs.
“The idea is really to get the light bulb to go off among young people so they understand there are a growing amount of opportunities both in education and careers in nanotechnology,” said college spokesman Stephen Janack.
