Students get a chance to get familiar with nanotechnology

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - The biggest event for the smallest science happened at Friday at Mohawk Valley Community College.

It's the second year for Nano Days. Around 200 campuses around the country take part and the idea is to get local students familiar and excited about nanotechnology.

"I think that their exhibits are set up so they can see physically what's happening and relate it to some real life examples of products," said Robert Decker, MVCC professor. "A lot of them are hands-on activities that they can participate in."

Friday was a preview. Nano Days is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday in the first-floor lobby of the IT building at MVCC's Utica Campus. Admission is free.
