El Segundo High Students Intrigued by Nanotech Workshop
After El Segundo High School’s enthusiastic response to our Discover Nanotechnology workshops last year in El Segundo, CA, we were invited back to deliver another round of workshops today. We presented two workshops to about 50 engineering students and, as usual, the classes enjoyed learning about superhydrophobic surfaces the most. One student imagined how water-repellent nanotechnology could enhance his own life:
“I really enjoyed the hydrophobic surfaces, and also the beginnings of an invisibility cloak. The concepts of new techs, seemingly inches away from discovery, is incredibly exciting.” He added that he would make the pages of his book superhydrophobic so that “I could then read in a shower, pool, or other wet environments.”
Thanks to Northrop Grumman for the Support for this workshop!
