2017 Nanoscale Microscopy Summer Institute Program Final Presentations


This one-week, hands-on, science learning opportunity for high school students focuses on scientific imaging, a topic that is typically only accessible in an advance college level course. Specifically, students will be able to explore three key microscopy techniques for nanoscience research: fluorescence microscopy, scanning probe microscopy, and electron microscopy. This one-week summer course offers an exploratory introduction to this important scientific skill for students as early as 10th grade at the high school level. 

At the end of the week, the students had an opportunity to present a research project proposal by applying knowledge they have gained throughout the week with their peers in a group. Click on the image to view the presentation.
