The first workshop Nano Curriculum Materials I (NCM I) will be offered during four sessions from April 6 through April 27 from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm EST. This workshop will focus on Materials, Equipment and Safety; Deposition; and Bottom-up and Bio-nanotechnology.
The second workshop Nano Curriculum Materials II (NCM II) will be offered during four sessions from May 11 through June 1 from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm EST. This workshop will focus on Etching, Patterning/Lithography, and Nanocharacterization.
Background information for each of the topics will be provided. The workshops will also cover the strategies for conducting the NPDP-provided labs, as well as, equipment needs, costs and sustaining costs. The various modes in which institutions may choose to present this material and their labs will be examined varying from complete in-house to web-augmented joint offerings with CNEU.
The Nano Curriculum Materials workshops do not need to be taken in order. However both need to be completed for participants to be eligible to attend one of four NPDP sites for a hands-on workshop.
