Omni Nano Attends the NSF’s Grantees in Nanotechnology Conference

Omni Nano attended the 2017 NSF-NSE Grantees Conference in Arlington, VA.

Omni Nano had the pleasure of attending this week’s Nanoscale Science and Engineering Grantees: Progress in Nanotechnology Conference presented by the National Science Foundation (NSF) in Arlington, Virginia.  This year’s conference focused on the nanotechnology of both today and tomorrow, with some panels summarizing the status of modern nanotechnology and others forecasting the future of convergence sciences and the education thereof.

The final panel of the two-day conference, called “Convergence in Education,” highlighted the state of nanotechnology education across various levels.  We were pleased to see that digital education remains a top priority of the US government and were happy to provide our input on this important topic.  The discussion inspired us to continue pushing for a high-quality, comprehensive digital nanotechnology curriculum for the benefit of today’s internet-savvy students and, ultimately, our future society.
