Participants learned about powerful scientific concepts underpinning advances in technology. Community Day was the official start of SUNY Poly’s seventh annual community outreach initiative known as “NANOvember,” a celebration of nanoscale science and engineering-based know-how that has wide application to daily life.

The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering’s “NANOvember” kickoff event highlights New York state’s growing high-tech sector with open houses in Canandaigua, Utica and Albany.

CNSE’s Smart System Technology & Commercialization Center in Canandaigua offered tours, presentations and family friendly, nano-enabled activities to showcase capabilities related to its cutting-edge sensor and system-on-a-chip technologies.

In Utica, hundreds of visitors were able to peek inside the SUNY Poly Computer Chip Commercialization Center (Quad-C), which is still under construction, to see an integral part of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s recently announced $1.5 billion ‘Nano Utica’ initiative, in addition to taking part in kid-friendly nano activities.

Activities continue throughout the month. For a complete list of events, along with pre-registration, visit www.sunycnse.com/NANOvember.aspx.
