Adventures In the Nano Zone! That is the title of the internet presentation that scientists from the Center for Sustainable Nanotechnology gave last Friday to 8th graders at the Hewitt School, an all-girls school in New York City. That was followed by lively Q&A sessions. During this week, Hewitt School students will be asking Center scientists more questions via comments at the end of this blog post, so stay tuned!
Here’s the deal. Hewitt School teacher, Kristina Walter, had a section on nanotechnology planned for her students and also happened to see a link on Facebook to one of our blog posts. Crazy! Together, we came up with a little experiment. Last Friday’s “webinar” was an introduction to nanotechnology and the goals of our research center. As the students come up with projects related to nanotechnology, they will get some help from Center scientists via a Q&A in the comments section of this blog post. In another post, we will publish a sampling of some of the student projects. We’re happy we could help out and are super excited to see what the students come up with!
Yay internets! Yay science!
