Proctor High School students take tour to learn about nanotechnology

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - Students from Proctor High School in Utica boarded a bus Wednesday at Mohawk Valley Community College to make their way to Albany.

The teens were going to visit the College of Nanoscale Science and Technology for a day-long tour to give students a glimpse of what the nanotechnology industry has to offer.

The tour is put on by the MVCC Science and Engineering entry program.

"It's still a very abstract concept. Nanoscale science? What's that?" said Megan Wickham of the MVCC Science and Engineering Entry Program. "And engineering...when I think of engineering, I think of building bridges and that kind of engineering, where this is engineering in a very small scale. It's almost foreign to talk about with the high school student."

The group was scheduled to return around 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, where they will learn about the college admission process and financial aid options.
