Southern Connecticut State U students getting hands on experience with NanoProfessor
Southern Connecticut State University students studying nanotechnology now have a new way to explore the nanoscale. NanoProfessor, a nanoscience education program designed to be used in a hands on capacity for nanoscale lab work, has been deployed as part of the existing curriculum.
The program comes with desktop nanofabrication instruments was written by experts and educators from the nanotechnology field, according to a prepared statement released this week by the company. Funding for NanoProfessor came from a grant awarded by the National Science Foundation (NSF).
“NanoProfessor’s curriculum will complement our existing curriculum,” explained Christine Caragianis Broadbridge, professor and chair of Physics in the prepared statement, “by engaging students with cutting-edge, hands-on, nano-focused experiments designed to teach them important scientific concepts about the nanoscale.” The curriculum and nanofabrication system will reside at the nanotechnology research center located in the university’s Physics Department.
