Nanotechnology Workshop for Community College Educators

RTNN is hosting a free nanotechnology workshop for community college educators at NC State on August 6-7, 2019. The workshop is open to educators from all backgrounds though it will focus on the incorporation of nanotechnology and nanoscience into basic science curricula, such as chemistry and physics. Participants will receive an overview on nanotechnology, learn more about specific nanotechnology characterization and fabrication tools and how they function, and discover how nanotechnology plays a role in applications across a variety of fields. The workshop will include hands-on work in a clean room and using analytical instruments. A detailed agenda will be posted in June. Last year’s agenda can be found here.

Support funding is available to participants for costs associated with travel. To apply for funding, please visit the support funding page.

Please submit the registration form to register for the workshop. The registration deadline is July 26, 2019. Due to the hands-on nature of the course, space is limited!

Note: Community college educators may also participate in the RTNN’s Research Experience for Teachers (RET) program. In the RET program, educators receive a $5,000 stipend to conduct research in an RTNN lab and develop curriculum linked to their project. For more information and to apply, visit the RET page.
