2011 News & Event Highlights
 

April 5-7 or November 15-17, 2011
Hands on Introduction to Nanotechnology for Educators
Presented by:   Center for Nanotechnology Education and Utilization at Penn State University
Workshop Location:
Penn State Center for Nanotechnology Education and Utilization, 101 Innovation Boulevard, Suite 114, University Park, Pennsylvania.

Description: This workshop will be an exploration of the world of nanotechnology. Participants will learn about the growing applications of nanotechnology in many industries including the biotechnology, MEMS, optoelectronics, chemical, and nanoelectronics industries. The basics of nanofabrication processes and tools will be covered and emphasized through processing labs held in the class 10 cleanrooms of the Penn State Nanofabrication Facility and the CNEU Teaching Cleanroom. This three-day workshop is broken down into daily morning lectures by nationally recognized Penn State researchers and engineering staff and into afternoon lab sessions in nanofabrication.

Utilizing NACK Class Notes/Lab Resources for the Teaching of the Six Nanotechnology Courses (a series of two workshops):
(1) Materials, Safety, and Equipment Overview for Nanotechnology, (2) Basic Nanotechnology Processes (3) Materials in Nanotechnology, and (4) Patterning for Nanotechnology (5) Materials Modification for Nanotechnology Applications and (6) Characterization, Testing of Nanotechnology Structures and Materials.
Presented by:   Center for Nanotechnology Education and Utilization at Penn State University
Workshop Location:   Lectures / discussions will be held at 114 Lubert Building, University Park, Pennsylvania and hands-on laboratory work will be accomplished at the cleanrooms at the Penn State University Materials Research Institute (MRI) in University Park, Pennsylvania.
 
Description:   NACK has redesigned the workshop series formerly known as “Train the Trainer”. Two new Nanotechnology Course Resources Workshops have been designed to provide faculty and administrators with the resources needed to effectively teach undergraduate nanotechnology courses based on the NACK suite of six nanotechnology courses.
