Our lab is actively involved in a number of outreach activities.
Undergraduate Research: Opportunities
always exist for motivated and talented undergraduates to work
in our research lab.
Undergraduate Teaching: During
the Fall 2003 semester, we will be a technical supervisor for
an EPICS course designed to introduce Nanotechnology to middle
school and high school kids.
High School: We offer the
opportunity for high school students to “Job Shadow”
for a day one of our research graduate students to learn more
about what physicists do and how they do it.
Example of job shadowing.

our lab and followed Gabor Pszota (right) around for a
day. Kyle learned about Nanoscale Science and Scanning
Probe Microscopes from Gabor. BOTTOM: Joel Therrien(left)
showing Chris Doty (right), a student from Brownsburg
Middle School, how to calibrate a photodiode. Chris
learned about Nanoscale Science during his day long visit
We have also made presentations to high school
and middle school science classes explaining what nanotechnology
is and what promises it offers for the future.
