Penn State Presents: Nanotechnology

3/30/2004 —

Representatives from Penn State University’s Nanofabrication facility at University Park will be at Penn State Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday, April 6, from 5-6 PM to address the perplexing question: Nanotechnology – What is it and What Does It Mean to YOU? Bill Mahoney and Douglas Fenwick will present the current and future applications of nanotechnology, how it will impact business and individuals, and will also dispel some common myths about nanotechnology.

Since 2000, the U.S. has invested millions of dollars into nanotechnology research and development. The National Science Foundation predicts a high demand in the near future for a workforce of highly qualified and trained technicians and technologists to run the processes needed, to troubleshoot this expensive equipment, and to assist in the development of products using nanotechnology.

This presentation is open to the general public. Faculty and staff from the Wilkes-Barre campus will be on hand to discuss educational opportunities in nanotechnology. To register or for more information, call 570-675-9238 or e-mail: wbadmissions@psu.edu
