Nanotechnology and You: a Better Future One Atom at a Time

February 12, 2022 at 11:00 am - 2:00 pm EST

Start time where you are: Your time zone couldn't be detected


In his salon, David White will engage in a discussion of nanotechnology foundations, applications, and impact on your life. Come to learn and discuss what nanotechnology means, how it can make your life better, and why it is taking so long to get here.

Nanotechnology has the promise to make all of our lives immeasurably better through improved control of the universe’s atoms. We have long strived to better utilize our environment to do more with less and nanotechnology is just the next frontier to improve our collective well-being.

We will look at the history of nanotechnology, its initial introduction to the public, and warring philosophical camps about its ultimate possibility.  How nanotechnology can specifically make your life better, existing products that you might already have, and where the future of nanotechnology leads will also be discussed. Come talk about your hopes for a better future through tinier technology.

All background levels are welcome, The materials below are helpful to ground some of the technical aspects.
