In support of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s innovation blueprint for educational excellence and economic development, CNSE is giving residents of the Capital Region and New York State an up-close look at the exciting world of nanotechnology, including its increasing impact on our daily lives and the role of CNSE in driving high-tech growth across the state.
CNSE's Community Day will offer guests a unique opportunity to receive a firsthand look at CNSE's Albany NanoTech Complex, which is the most advanced research enterprise of its kind at any university in the world: an ever-expanding $17 billion, 1.3 million-square-foot megaplex that attracts corporate partners from around the world and offers students a one-of-a-kind educational experience.
Both adults and children will have the chance to interact with CNSE faculty, students and staff, and to participate in a variety of activities that promote a greater understanding of nanotechnology, including:
- Tours of NanoFab Xtension's (NFX) cutting-edge 450mm cleanroom facilities
- Hands-on polymer experiments
- Cleanroom gowning demonstrations
- Kid's Corner featuring child-friendly activities relating to nanotechnology
- Nanotechnology overview presentations
- Undergraduate and Graduate information sessions
- Displays showcasing research in CNSE's constellations, including health care, energy and economics
Additionally, first-ever Community Day events will be held concurrently at CNSE locations in Utica, at the Computer Chip Commercialization Center (Quad-C), part of Governor Cuomo’s Nano Utica initiative, and CNSE's Smart System Technology and Commercialization Center of Excellence (STC) in Rochester.
