The National Center for Earth and Environmental Nanotechnology Infrastructure (NanoEarth) hosted Eastern Montgomery High School’s Materials and Processes Technology class during their Virginia Tech (VT) Spring Semester tour. Department Head of Career, Technology, and Education (CTE) Marc Eaton, led his students through multiple labs on VT’s campus, ending with the Nanoscale Characterization and Fabrication Laboratory (NCFL). After the group, consisting of 19 high school students and one teacher, were split up into three rotations, participants met NanoEarth and NCFL instrument specialists in small group settings. VT Center for Sustainable Nanotechnology Laboratory Director Weinan Leng, Ph.D., demoed the X-Ray Scanning Photoelectron Spectrometer Microprobe (XPS). NCFL Instrument Specialist Sheri Singerling, Ph.D., discussed her academic background and walked students through potential research topics that could be investigated using the Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM). NCFL Instrument Specialist Steve McCartney showcased analysis techniques conducted by the Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) and discussed tips for applying to college.
