If you live in one of the states that’s got a location, this sounds like it’s worth attending. The Nanotechnology Colloqium is presenting a video-conference lecture through the auspices of the University of Texas by Jan Beck, PhD–whose credentials as an expert on nanoscale engineering are impressive.
The blurb says you don’t have to know math or quantum physics to understand how the materials are made and how they act. Lots of real world examples of nano-materials in action. Read the announcement and register here–the date is Monday, October 20, from 12:00 to 1:30 CT.
In Chicago, it’ll be broadcast at Illinois Institute of Technology, Stuart Building, room 21210 West 31st Street. The rest of the locations are in Texas–congrats to Chicago for snagging a venue.
