CEET High School Nanotechnology Summer Residential Camp

Nanotechnology is concerned with the control of matter on the nanometer scale- one nanometer is one billionth of a meter, or 100,000 times smaller than a human hair.  This cutting edge field has become an interdisciplinary STEM field.

This residential camp gives a broad overview of nanoscience/nanotechnology as a field with many career opportunities.  Students are able to gain a comprehensive understanding through activities that will introduce them to the unique properties at the nanoscale.
