During his scheduled visit in April in preparation for the upcoming summer Symposium on Nanotechnology, scientist and Professor Munir Nayfeh, in collaboration with the Academy and the Palestinian Ministry of Education, is planning to hold an interactive lecture on the topic of nanotechnology for high school students, namely grade 11 students of the scientific branch, in three geographically distributed governorates of the West Bank.
The students will be able to learn about and handle nano-samples like silicon nanoparticles, fiberglass, carbon nano-tubes, graphene, silicon oxide (SiO2) nanoparticles, silicon wafer crystals, luminescent silicon wafers, ...etc., in addition to dark-light lamp demonstrations.
This interactive lecture is the first of a lecture series to be conducted by world renowned scientists invited by the Academy, as part of our Science Communication and Outreach Program, aimed at raising the awareness and interest of our public and youth in the various scientific fields and current hot topics of research.
