Nanotechnology


On Tuesday 20th March, SMRT hosted a high profile 'public engagement in science' event to debate the development and uses of nanotechnology.

As part of the EC-funded Nanochannels project, Dr Hill's Year 10 and 11 students were joined by Dr Terry McMaster, Dr Annela Seddon, Sam Olof and Tom Carvell from the Bristol Centre of Functional Nanomaterials.  Together they formed an expert panel to lead a debate on the use of 'nanosensors in medical diagnosis'.  Over 100 people attended, including parents, press, representatives from technology companies, educational organisations and students from years 10-13.

The event was a huge success with impressive presentations and insightful discussions by students from SMRT and the expert scientists. We look forwards to reading the articles about this event in local and national media.  Here's are some photos of the event, more links and details will follow:
