Join us for a special Take-out Science Session as we celebrate National Nanotechnology Day on October 9th. We will give a quick introduction to length scales and nanotechnology, find out more about a clean room, and observe various samples on our scanning electron microscope. We will go live at 1 pm (EDT). Submit your nano-inspired questions for our experts in the comments section below or email us at rtnanonetwork@ncsu.edu.

Abby Carbone Inspires the Next Generation of Nanotechnologists

Former RTNN Student Ambassador and NC State alumna Abby Carbone, recently joined the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO) on the “Stories from the NNI” podcast to discuss her passion for science outreach. “Stories from the NNI” is a podcast where researchers and innovators discuss their work at the nanoscale, the challenges they’ve faced, and how they’ve connected with the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI).

RET Participant Mark McLean Shares His Excitement for Nano-education

Mark McLean took part in the RTNN’s RET program, Atomic Scale Design and Engineering during the summer of 2019. He worked with UNC grad student Jon Meyers in the lab of Professor Jim Cahoon. Over the summer, he learned how to see and use many of the tools that researchers use for nanofabrication and characterization. Education is a second career for McLean, and he recently discussed why he chose to teach with NC State’s College of Education. His enthusiasm for nano-education is contagious. Read more about his experience working and educating in nano here.

Week 12: Audience samples

In Week 12, we’ll look at samples that you’ve sent us. Phillip Strader (pictured left) will lead us as we explore these samples. If you have any questions for us or want to see something in particular, let us know via email (rtnanonetwork@ncsu.edu), Twitter (@RTNNsocial) or Facebook, or in the comments section below.

Instead of YouTube this week, we’ll be using Zoom. Please join the meeting here. Contact RTNN (rtnanonetwork@ncsu.edu ) if you have trouble joining. We’ll post the video to YouTube after the live show.
