Kavli Institute's Journalist Workshop, June 13, at Cornell

Cover your shoes, put on your goggles and zip up your clean-room suit. Youre going to make a nano device.

You are invited to the Journalist Workshop in Nanotechnology, June 13, 2007, hosted by the Kavli Institute at Cornell for Nanoscale Science. (Space is limited and the deadline for registration is May 30. Journalists are encouraged to register now. If the workshop is filled, a waiting list will be created.)

Explore nanoscience and technology, and learn about fabrication and characterization at the nanoscale. Journalists will participate in hands-on experiences that include an interactive laboratory tour in Duffield Hall, where reporters will fabricate a functional nanodevice. Other hands-on workshops include spinning nanofibers, creating nanotubes, polymer assembly, and imaging nanoparticles in three dimensions.

This workshop wraps up with direct interaction with several Cornell faculty, who will describe their current research with one slide and a three-minute pitch. Journalists can continue talking with more faculty at the evening reception and dinner.

Nanotechnology goes ready-to-wear: The evening program, following dinner, features a "fashion-show" that focuses on fabrics with nano-functionality, and other nano-functional fabrics that are used as sensors and to create sophisticated air filters.

The journalist workshop is free, with meals provided, and the journalists will get a complimentary registration for the Cornell NanoScale Facilitys 30th Anniversary symposium on June 14. Journalists are responsible for their own travel and lodging costs. Space is limited to 40 journalists and the deadline to register is May 30.
