Volunteers needed for MSU science and engineering outreach event on Feb. 28
Students, staff and faculty volunteers are needed for MSU's eighth annual NanoDays / MicroDays event, a celebration of small-scale science and engineering.
The event takes place on Tuesday, Feb. 28.
The event features all small-scale research (not just nanoscale) and is a perfect opportunity for individuals and organization to reach out to hundreds of community members. MSU Extended University hosts the event and takes care of all marketing, planning and logistics.
The morning shift is 10:30 a.m. to 11:45, when fifth graders from Irving and Whittier Schools visit campus; the evening shift is 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. when the event is open to the public. Volunteers can take a partial shift. All events take place in the SUB Ballrooms.
Knowledge of nanotechnology is not necessary, and training will be provided on how to communicate about this topic to the public. Consultations are provided to students and faculty who wish to create their own hands-on activity to showcase their research or interest area.
Volunteers can sign up online through the NanoDays Website at http://eu.montana.edu/NanoDays. For more information, contact Suzi Taylor with MSU Extended University: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 994-6550.
