Students aged 16-18 (upper secondary and JC Year 1) are invited to participate in this workshop at ECE NUS which will provide an introduction to the field of nanotechnology. This workshop will focus on the atomic and molecular structure and other concepts necessary to understanding why very small systems exhibit unique behaviors. We will also explore various applications. Through lectures, class discussions, mini-labs, we will cover topics in nanomaterials, nanofabrication techniques, imaging nanostructures and real-life applications of nanotechnology.
There are limited places available and early registration is recommended.
