Nanotechnology Summer Camp

Comments Off on Nanotechnology Summer Camp

Tomorrow July 25 kicks off the start of a week of new and exciting things for high school students looking to learn more about nanotechnology.

Students will explore the mysteries of matter at the level of atoms and molecules. At the nanoscale(there are 25,400,000 nanometers to an inch), copper can become transparent and aluminum combustible. They will learn about the unexpected behavior of materials at the nanoscale in interactive discussions, hands-on activities, and lab tours. Students will even discover how we can mimic nature to make better sticky tape and stain-proof pants. No science knowledge is required.

Good luck students, we look forward to having you and posting about your experiences!

Biomedical Engineering Summer Camp

Tomorrow July 11 kicks off the start of a week of new and exciting things for high school students looking to learn more about biomedical engineering.

Students will explore the role of a biomedical engineer in designing procedures and equipment that assist in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease and injury, make medical testing less intrusive, and enhance the quality of life for people with disabilities. Team projects will acquaint students with basic engineering design tools and the instrumentation used in medical settings.

Good luck students, we look forward to having you and posting about your experiences!
