I’ll tell the story of the event titled: IEEEnanoCON-2016: Inspiring the Next Generation by starting at the end. These are some of the comments from attendees following the 3 day mid-year workshop on nanotechnology designed for college students on Summer break and young professionals.
“First and foremost, I’d like to say that I enjoyed almost every single aspect of the event, and in particular, I thought the diversity of speakers (especially the balance between industry and academia) and locations was excellent.” Alex, UC Davis Chem E. undergrad.
“In my experience, the three days of IEEEnanoCON-2016 resulted in a fantastic combination of getting up to speed in areas of my own interest (biotechnology and medical devices) and developing knowledge and ideas in new polymers, new semiconductor materials, addressing energy needs and clean technologies. To make all this possible, the program brought together an excellent panel of presenters from industry, academia and government research to interact with a very enthusiastic and curious group of young scientists and engineers, from elite schools, universities and colleges from all over. I take away the inspiration and the energy of a new generation of scientists to lead the field in decades to come.” Maria, Ph.D., EMBA, Medical Device Consultant
“I am deeply grateful for the education I have received from the three days of incredible speakers, great itineraries, enjoyable food, and excellent networking. This event has helped me see possibilities for myself that hadn’t occurred to me before.” Margaret, Undergrad, Foothill College.
