I have been away for a while. Got through the semester, I had a nice break and I am well into the second semester. I will try to finish the last first semester course material and get started on the second nanoscience course. Yesterday we had 26 local high school (grades 9-12) and middle school (grades 6-8) teachers attend a workshop on our campus. The teachers were brought into CVTC's class 100 clean room where they processed silicon wafers using photolithography to transfer a pattern of our school/department logo into a 500 nm aluminum film.

In the last section of the first semester course I cover a variety of topics. Students are required to give a presentation on a nanoscience topic of their choice. The give a oral presentation which usually uses Powerpoint and the have to turn in a written report. The rubric I use for the report is provided here to give you an idea of what I expect:

Following is a list of some of the topics that the students selected this year:

Nanotechnology Energy Options
Environmental Impacts of Nanotechnology
Nanoscience Intellectual Property
Investing in Nanoscience
Nanoscience and Photovotaic Cells

working on nano oxides and their charecterstics.

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
