“Why Nanoscience is Sweet: From Swords to Solar Energy,” a presentation by Dean J. Murray Gibson
PRISM invites you to “Why Nanoscience is Sweet: From Swords to Solar Energy,” a presentation by Dean J. Murray Gibson, founding dean of Northeastern’s College of Science.
The presentation will be held Tuesday, Nov. 1 from 3:30-4:30 p.m. in the Frost Lounge in Ell Hall. Refreshments will be provided.
Abstract: A nanometer is the distance your fingernail grows in a second. It is pretty small – so why the hype? We’ll talk about why and how nanoscience opens up new horizons for creative stuff from lighter and stronger aircraft wings to hypothetical idiots (carrying all human knowledge on a device the size of your fingernail) or cheap solar cells that could solve the energy problem.
Please see the attached flyer for more information on the event, and PRISM’s website (http://www.math.neu.edu/prism/) for information on our other programs. We look forward to seeing you next week!
The Boston Action Club presents a forum of interactive meetings on movement neuroscience for researchers in the Boston area. The series of talks is interdisciplinary bringing together presenters and audience from such disparate fields as Biology, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science, Psychology and Cognitive Science, Physics, and Kinesiology. The presentations are held in a highly interactive style, followed by more interactions in social gatherings. Please see the website for the list of speakers each semester.
