About Student Seminars in Nanoscience

Welcome to the 2009 Student Seminars in Nanoscience seminar series. This seminar series has two main goals. First, we want to help graduate and undergraduate students improve their science communication skills by giving short talks to an interdisciplinary but scientifically literate audience. Second, we want to promote awareness of interdisciplinary graduate and undergraduate research going on at UW to facilitiate collaborations and new projects.

Just because you register for the course doesn't mean you are committed to speak, but you are highly encouraged to do so!

We hope you'll agree that spending a few Wednesdays watching your fellow students talk over the lunch hour is nice way to learn some science while helping your fellow students become better speakers.
