The Materials Sciences Division at the University of California's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory invites you and your students to Nano*High, a series of free Saturday morning lectures by UC Berkeley professors and LBNL senior scientists conducting research from nanoscience to molecular medicine, and climate change to astrophysics. 2009-2010 will be our seventh year of Nano*High. Last year over 900 students and their teachers attended at least one talk. Nano*High talks are aimed at all high school students, from those already committed to careers in science to those committed to poetry, history, philosophy or to figuring out what they want to be committed to.
Nano*High attendees meet and talk with (and can have their pictures taken with) world-renowned Berkeley scientists. A small group of student attendees are invited to stay for lunch after the talk with members of the speaker's research group. Here they can discuss the day-to-day life and work of undergraduate and graduate students performing the research presented in the talk. Teachers are invited to join the speaker in a separate lunch. Invitations to lunch will be sent to all registered students and teachers - we will try to accommodate as many who are interested.
