CEDENNA organizes numerous outreach activities, including conferences, talks, competitions, schools, seminars and exhibitions, to present its work to the general community, generating greater interest in science among the youth of our country.
The IV Workshop for High School Teachers, Pronano 2017, organized by the nanotechnology center, Cedenna, is an initiative carried out within the framework of extension and scientific outreach activities.
Teachers of the scientific areas (biology, physics and chemistry) can apply. The workshop is free of charge and teachers from regions that register can opt for a scholarship granted by Cedenna, which includes transfer and accommodation.
The aim of the workshop is to contribute to the understanding of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology from the theoretical and applied point of view. Nanoscience studies the properties of nanometer-scale materials (one millionth of a millimeter structures), which are different from those of larger dimensions. Besides, Nanotechnology is oriented to the applications of these new discoveries. These areas are revolutionizing science with important contributions to the environment, medicine, food industry and electronics, among many others, and Cedenna is one of the main centers that develop this type of projects in Chile.
The Pronano 2017 Workshop begins with a series of lectures by distinguished scientists from various disciplines, explaining the progress and scope of these areas and their latest research. The second part considers guided visits to different laboratories located in the campus of the University of Santiago of Chile, where you can see the equipment and technology available in this area.
Pronano 2017 will be held on Thursday, May 25th., from 8 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., in Conference Room C, ViMe Building (ex Ceni), University of Santiago of Chile, located at Las Sophoras 175, Estación Central, Santiago. To participate it is necessary to apply to one of the quotas by completing the registration form and sending it to the electronic box firstname.lastname@example.org. A selection of applicants will be made and those chosen will be notified to participate by email or telephone call.
