Nano@Tech is an organization comprised of professors, graduate students, and undergraduate students from Georgia Tech and nearby academic institutions, as well as professionals from the corresponding scientific community that are interested in nanotechnology. Seminar meetings are held on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month during the academic year at noon in the Marcus Nanotechnology Building conference rooms (rooms 1116-1118).

Nano@Tech members also support the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network (NNIN) Education and Outreach Office at Georgia Tech. Our K-16 programs are a success due to the growing commitment of this group of cross-disciplined Georgia Tech engineers and researchers. This networking group meets for seminars and generously volunteers their knowledge, research, labs, and cleanrooms to help us motivate young people about possible education and careers opportunities as well as excite them about nanoscale science and engineering.

If you would like to be added to the mailing list and receive information related to Nano@Tech events please send an email to Dr. David Gottfried or Ms. Christa Ernst.
