Engaging Locally - Impact on Future Generations

MF LabThe NBIC seeks to engage a wide audience that includes the university community as well as reaching out to our neighborhoods.  Programs are oriented towards academics for undergraduate and graduate students as well as high school science teachers.  Other programs are more informal with the intent of increasing awareness and appreciation for societal impacts of nanoscale science and technology.  These programs are targeted toward precollegiate students, the general public, and the news media.  The overarching goal is to contribute to the development of a more scientifically literate community using nanoscale topics to excite the imagination.
