Student Speaker: Tim Fister: Symmetries in excited state electronic structure measured with inelastic x-ray scattering
Student Speaker: Deborah Basset: Cultural Communication in Science: Analyzing the Discourse(s) of Nanoscience
This CR/NC course consists of student seminars on current research topics in nanoscience and nanotechnology presented by University of Washington graduate students. Each student speaker will give a 20-minute presentation and answer questions during the following 5 minutes. This will allow 2 student speakers to present at each weekly 50-minute class meeting. The seminars will be aimed at an interdisciplinary audience of science and engineering graduate students, although some speakers may practice K-12 outreach seminars and job/conference talks. The course is open to graduate as well as undergraduate students. To receive credit, the students registered for the class must attend all the seminars. Although giving a presentation is not required to receive credit, it is strongly recommended, since this will give the student speakers an opportunity to share and discuss their research with fellow students and to practice and hone their presentation skills in front of an audience. The schedule for talks will be organized by the the curriculm committee for the Nanotechnology and Nanoscience Student Association (NaNSA) at UW with assistance from Prof. Ginger.
