Upcoming Events:

Nanoscience Workshop!

Participants will come to Altschul 530 for a general presentation and discussion of the current state of the rapidly changing field of nanoscience. The discussion will cover the properties, preparation,
and analysis of a wide range of nanomaterials, including quantum dots, nanotubes, and two-dimensional
materials. There will also be hands-on demonstrations, a discussion of my research on the 2D carbon material
graphene, and a tour of my laboratory. Then we will take a tour of the nanoscience synthesis and
characterization facilities at Columbia University, which is a world leader in nanoscience research.

Noyce Mentoring Program: Summer 2015!

As part of our mentoring program, our first cohort of Noyce Interns, who just finished their first year of teaching, attended a Summer Institute in Cambridge, MA, from July  6-9, hosted by Engaging Schools.

Professor Rivera, Audrey Massmann, Kassidy Meck, Rebecca Battat

According to their website:

    Engaging Schools is a nonprofit organization that collaborates with educators in middle and high schools.
    We help them create a school-wide community of learning that integrates academic, social, and emotional development — and prepares each and every student to succeed.
    We offer professional development and resources with practical strategies that are grounded in the values of equity, community, and democracy. The result: educators who can better engage their students — and students who are prepared to make positive contributions in school, work, and life.

We had a great time at the institute and will report back about how we are using what we learned!
