ALBANY, N.Y. -- It's an economic engine in our area, but how much do we actually know about nanotechnology?
For people looking to answer that question, this weekend was the perfect opportunity to do just that, as the SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering kicked off its annual celebration of "NANOvember."
Saturday, the school held its community day, marking the beginning of a month-long series of events showcasing nanotechnology. The day featured presentations of basic nano tech principles, hands on experiments and guided tours of the Clean Room and the new Nanofab Xtension.
Organizers say it's a great opportunity to expose kids to opportunities in math and science.
"Kids getting involved at an early age, seeing that nano technology is fun and seeing that there are opportunities based on the investments that Governor Cuomo is making. To know that they can get a great education and a great career right here in New York State, it's really priceless," said Steve Janack, CNSE Vice President of Marketing of Communications.
