Lintec Nano-Science & Technology Center joins NanoDays™ 2015, an annual celebration that brings together university researchers and science educators to create learning experiences for children and adults, exploring the miniscule world of atoms, molecules, and nanoscale forces.
"At Lintec, we are delighted to bring our industry perspective to this wonderful community event," said Kanzan Inoue, Managing Director of Lintec Nano-Science & Technology Center. "Our corporate staff is enthusiastic about sharing hands-on activities exploring polarized light, thermoacoustic sound projectors, and futuristic artificial muscles. We hope to inspire people of all ages to learn about the interdisciplinary field of nanotechnology, leading to dreams about new knowledge and innovations never possible before."
NanoDays™ 2015 at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science is part of a nationwide festival of educational programs about nanoscale science and engineering. Organized by the Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network (NISE Net), NanoDays™ takes place nationally from March 28 – April 5, 2015. The community-based event is the largest public outreach effort in nanoscale informal science education, involving science museums, research centers, and universities from Puerto Rico to Alaska.
"We are excited to join forces with Lintec, our corporate industry partner, to demonstrate real world applications and tools that showcase nano materials with spectacular promise," said Ray Baughman, Director of the Alan G. MacDiarmid NanoTech Institute at UT Dallas.
"We are thrilled to see the partnership between Lintec and UT Dallas continue to bring opportunities for growth and enlightenment," said Richardson Mayor, Laura Maczka. "Our Telecom Corridor™ area has long been a home for innovation and technological advancement. This event is a great opportunity for our city and region to get a glimpse of the nanotechnology research and development underway in Richardson."
"Nanotechnology will affect our economy, the environment, and our personal lives," added Inoue. "At this event, our employees are energized to interact with the community, sharing Lintec's vision to revolutionize research and development in medicine, new materials, energy, automotive, and environmental stewardship."
