Workshop focuses on nanotechnology

High school students who want to think big are being encouraged to think small – like really, really, small. A Pittsburg State University summer research workshop for high school juniors and seniors will focus on nanotechnology, which is technology at the molecular level.

The one-week workshop is called the REACH-RS Summer 2008 Program and is sponsored by the Center for Nanocomposites and Multifunctional Materials at PSU. Workshop activities will include the nanofabrication of structural foams, nanocharacterization of foams via atomic force microscopes, and the effective communication of workshop outcomes. The workshop will run from 8:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. daily July 21-25 in Room W118 of the Kansas Technology Center at PSU.

There is no charge for the workshop and students who are selected to participate and complete the workshop will receive a $100 stipend. Positions are limited.

To apply, call the director, Dr. Chris Ibeh, at 620-235-4354 or send an e-mail to cibeh@pittstate.edu.
