Outreach at MNTL
The education, training, and outreach efforts at MNTL are primarily managed by the Center for Nanoscale Science & Technology, which resides in our building. Through CNST, our researchers and staff have introduced nanotechnology to many local K-12 students and high school and community college teachers/faculty, enabled hundreds of undergraduates to gain valuable laboratory research experience, and trained scores of researchers in bionanotechnology-related research topics and lab techniques.
K-12 Nanotechnology Education
- Engineering Open House
- Research Experience for Teachers
- NanoSTRuCT, an outreach collaboration with B.T . Washington School in Champaign
- Science at the Market, sharing nanotechnology activities with the public at the Urbana Farmer’s Market
- Science night at Leal Elementary school
