Students immersed in STEM concepts

May 2018     No Comments

More than 150 elementary, middle, and high school students visited SUNY Poly’s College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering on April 17 to take part in the institution’s popular “NanoCareer Day” program, where students get the chance to learn about exciting science, technology, engineering, and mathematics-based (STEM) concepts.

Students from four schools (Bethlehem Middle School, Frankfort-Schuyler Central School, Eagle Point Elementary School, and Donovan Middle School) spent the day immersed in nanotechnology-enabled activities that taught them how small a nanometer is, and helped them to understand principles related to magnetism, circuits, conductivity, and solar power.

The students also toured the Albany NanoTech Complex and had the chance to gown up in cleanroom “bunny” suits.
