CNSE and CMOST partner to host Summer NanoCamp as part of 'Girls in Science and Technology' program
(Nanowerk News) The national effort to motivate young women to explore careers in science and technology received a boost when the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) of the University at Albany and the Children's Museum of Science and Technology (CMOST) partnered to showcase the exciting world of nanotechnology on July 27.
As part of CMOST's "Girls in Science and Technology" program, CNSE and CMOST jointly presented a Summer NanoCamp at CNSE's Albany NanoTech Complex, providing an introduction to the emerging science of nanotechnology.
Participants received an introductory presentation on nanotechnology; toured CNSE's world-class Albany NanoTech Complex; 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.
