Information about MRSEC 2013 summer camp programs is now online! The application deadline for the public camp is Friday, May 24. If you haven't gotten your application in yet, don't delay!
MRSEC has created a new museum teaching exhibit piece as part of a How Do You Nan-Know? exhibit partially funded by NISE and created by the MRSEC and Port Discovery Children's Museum. This series complements the MRSEC-created "NanoFabulous" and NISE "Nano" exhibits already in the museum. The How Do You Nan-Know? series is designed to help young visitors identify nano in their neighborhood and evaluate how they make value descisions about nano and other criteria in their everyday lives.
The University of Maryland MRSEC congratulates Jillian Epstein, former MRSEC REU Student, on being awarded a fellowship from the National Science Foundation's (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program! Jillian commented, "working in [Dr. Ehrman's] lab during the MRSEC REU inspired me to pursue a career in research and also guided my research interests toward developing novel energy and electronic materials."
Best of luck to Jillian in her graduate research endeavors!
Nanoscientist Dr. Michael Fuhrer from the University of Maryland MRSEC provided an interactive talk on nano at Port Discovery Children's Museum on Saturday, September 8, 2012 by the "NanoFabulous" and "nano" exhibits.
Dr. Fuhrer is an expert in nanoscale electronics that are changing our world!
