April 2 @ 8:00 AM - - April 3 @ 5:00 PM - BRK Atrium
Friday's activities will involve school visitors
Saturday's activities will include the general public
With the aid of the NISE Network and Birck staff, the students have planned a series of exciting activities. These events will vary from skit-based educational entertainment to hands-on experiments. We hope to engage as many students as possible by using multiple instructional methods that will be informative and fun. Our objectives for impacting the community are two-fold. First, we hope to educate the public on the impacts, both positive and negative, that nanotechnology will have on society in the near to distant future. Second, we hope to spark the interest of young people to enter STEM fields. We plan to achieve this by giving students a look at innovative work occurring at Purdue University. Purdue students will benefit by improving their ability to communicate technical information to a varied audience and by gaining invaluable experience in educating a broader population through community outreach.
It would be great to get your students and/or faculty involved. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you should have any questions. John Wilcox and Caitlin Burger [both copied here] are our students contacts.
