"The six-week program, which was funded through the New York State Education Department's Excelsior Scholars Program for Grade Seven Mathematics and Science Students, provided a foundational understanding of the fundamental principles and applications of nanoscale science and engineering. It included an up-close look at several cutting-edge areas of nanotechnology, such as nanoelectronics, optoelectronics, nanobioscience, and solar-powered devices."

"Each week, students attended two days of introductory nanoscience courses taught at Albany High School, and then brought those classroom lessons to life with hands-on, interactive laboratory activities conducted at CNSE's world-class Albany NanoTech Complex. Participating students were selected by their home school districts based upon distinguished work in mathematics and science.

Students who participated in the Excelsior Scholars Nanoscale Science Summer Institute were selected by their home school districts based upon distinguished work in mathematics and science."

Upon completion of the program, certificates were disseminated to the middle-school students and poster sessions were presented, demonstrating results of the students' research work.

I'm awaiting updated 2009 info from a CNSE associate.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
