    The Symposium will be held in Esker Hall at University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. The event is open to all UW faculty, staff and students. This event is coming to you through the efforts of Dr. Steven Girard, Dr. Ozgur Yavuzcetin, and Dr. Donna Vosburgh. Nanoscience is a multidisciplinary science and requires the input of all these fields and more, and that's why any student from any discipline can get involved.

    So, what is nanoscience? It is the science that studies extremely small things around the size of an atom. For example, a human hair is about 100,000 nanometers (nm) in diameter. One nano is equal to one billionth of a measurement. Consider length, a nanometer is billion times smaller than the meter. The importance of nanoscience is that same material behaves and looks different at the nano scale. The physical appearance, interaction, color, and many other important physical, chemical, and biological properties are different.
