Celebrate Women’s History Month with a Free Virtual Event!

Updated: Feb 15, 2023

In honor of Women's History Month (March 2023), youth groups and classrooms can invite a female nanoscientist or nanoengineer to virtually visit your group!

The National Nanotechnology Coordination Office reached out to female scientists and engineers who are pursuing research in nanotechnology and asked if they'd like to talk to students as part of Women's History Month. They are excited about this opportunity to talk to youth about their career paths and how they use nanotechnology to solve problems.

Are you interested in this free activity?

If so, please fill out this Google Form and National Nanotechnology Coordination Office will pair you with a female scientist for a one-hour virtual session sometime in March. In the Google Form, you will find available dates and times from the scientists. All you need to do is choose a date and time that would work best for you and indicate the times when your group meets.

If you have multiple groups to which you'd like to invite a scientist, you will need to fill out the form for each group. There isn't a guarantee you'll get the same speaker for each one, but each speaker is a strong communicator who wants to share her experience and talk about her work at the nanoscale.

Matching will occur on a first-come, first-served basis, so if you are interested, please don't wait! Requests will be checked on a rolling basis and the Coordination Office will let you know when you are paired with a scientist. They will also let you know if you aren't paired with anyone so you can try again.

Once you're matched, the Coordination Office will e-introduce you to your guest speaker, so you can share the appropriate virtual link to join your group and any additional details you'd want to share.

The Coordination Office looks forward to working with you on this exciting opportunity and hope that these sessions will add value to your teaching experience while also inspiring your students about the value of science and technology in our lives.

If you have any questions or would like to receive additional details, please feel free to contact Dr. Patrice Pages, Communications and Public Affairs Liaison with the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office at:
