At MySDscience you want to:
Make new connections, share my science, learn about what other San Diegan's say about science, spread the word about the Science Festival, events
I'm not aware of any multimedia "awareness" presentations in Nanotechnology...however, there is definately a need. There is an 8 week research opportunity for K-12 science teachers in Nanotechnology at Northwestern University this summer...NU Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center at Northwestern. Contact them... you might find what you are looking for given there focus on Nano curriculum development.
Thanks for invite. I have never worked in the nanotech field.... admittedly know very little about it -- although the strange behavioral changes of nano-materials have always been fascinating to me. I have worked many years in the sales/mktg area in hi tech industry, and perhaps I can be of value to your foundation in some capacity. Regards, Marya
Hello Michael, I am impressed by the breadth of your sceintific interests. I too work in nanotechnology, stable isotopes of organic matter, particularly, pharmaceuticals and I am interested in biofuels and plant extracts. John J. (www.NaturesFingerprint.com)
