Nanotechnology Workshop for Community College Educators

RTNN hosts a free nanotechnology workshop for community college educators annually in August. 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 characterization instruments 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 to expose participants to tools and techniques used in nanofabrication. More information about the 2019 workshop will be posted shortly. Support funding is available to participants for costs associated with travel. To apply for funding, please visit the support funding page. Questions/concerns can be directed to rtnanonetwork@ncsu.edu.
