Exploring Your Universe | November 1, 2020

November 1, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Online

Join us for UCLA’s largest annual science fair! Exploring Your Universe Is Going Virtual! EYU will be a virtual, interactive event this year to give student groups at UCLA the opportunity to bring demonstrations and interactive laboratories to students at home. We know a virtual event may be challenging for some booths so please contact us if you would like to brainstorm with the EYU organizers. See more information here. Free Admission! Thanks to our generous donors and volunteers. What is EYU? Exploring…

Structure and Surfaces at the Nanoscale

November 12, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Online

By Prof. Vanessa Wood Department of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering ETH Zürich This lecture is being broadcast through Zoom: https://ucla.zoom.us/j/94706547372 Liquid-phase and wet-processing techniques offer tremendous opportunities for low-cost manufacturing and enable the concept of large-scale nanotechnology. Today, these approaches have facilitated the massive upscaling of lithium ion battery technology and promise to play a future role in a wide variety of electronic, photonic, and electrochemical systems. Materials and devices made from these approaches often exhibit hierarchical structures and…

Nanoscience Workshop for Teachers: Nanoscale Control of Wetting

January 23 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Online

Nanoscale Control of Wetting: The superhydrophobic surfaces experiment blends elements from chemistry, biology, and physics to vividly demonstrate how the incorporation of nanoscale texture at a material’s surface can lead to dramatic changes in certain physical properties such as wettability. Students will learn basic concepts in surface chemistry and discuss emerging industrial applications for materials with these unique characteristics. The Nanoscience Workshop for Teachers program demonstrates advanced nanoscience experiments on Saturdays throughout the academic school year for elementary, middle, and…
