Nanotechnology 10

Course Number: 
Course Term: 

This course will introduce upper-division high school students to the key ideas of nanoscale science with an emphasis on applications of topics from physics, biology, chemistry, mathematics, and environmental science. Key concepts will be explored in an integrated discussion-lab setting as opposed to a strict lecture-based format. These concepts will include exploring the myths and realities of nanotechnology, self-assembly, nanomagnets, scanning probe microscopy, nano-engineered fabrics and memory wires, biomimicry, and nano-medicine. Students will also receive college credit through Foothill College which is UC/CSU transferrable. This course meets the “g” (elective) requirement for UC/CSU.

This course will be offered “0” or “H” period.
