We've already had snow in Boston, and the fall conference season is upon us, with some excellent opportunities for those interested in learning more about researcher - ISE partnership craft. First up on the schedule, the Association of Science-Technology Centers conference, which provides a splendid opportunity to get away to Fort Worth for Halloween (Oct 31 - Nov 3).
I wrote about this in the February 2009 Nano Bite e-newsletter, but it didn't make it onto the Nano Bite blog until now.
The Da Vinci Science Center in Allentown, PA hosted two Senior Science Monday workshops last January using activities from the NanoDays kits and an adaptation of the introduction to nano presentation (here and here).
Halloween is October 31st, and if you're looking to celebrate nano-style, here are some links for activities or costume ideas:
The NISE Net recently had our Annual Meeting in San Francisco, and we were joined by some of our partners from around the country.
Meeting attendees spent some time helping us think of new, innovative nano programming. In the photo above, attendees are embodying particles forming a crystal in a workshop led by Redshift Productions.
If you weren't able to join us at the Association of Science Technology Centers Conference at the end of October, perhaps you can catch up with the NISE Network at the Materials Research Society Fall Meeting in Boston at the end of November. The MRS is playing a major role to bring the education and research communities together at their Fall 2009 Meeting, hosting hands-on activities, demonstrations, exhibits and topics for educating future materials scientists and engineers. (And a special thank you to Richard Souza for compiling all these activities for me!)
The Association of Science-Technology Centers Annual Conference is coming up at the end of October and the NISE Net will have a bunch of stuff going on there. Here's a preliminary list of what's happening:
Here's a full list of the Association of Science-Technology Centers Annual Conference sessions that will be featuring NISE Net work or findings from our work, sorted by date and time. Please keep in mind that session descriptions are taken from the Preliminary Program.
