Nano Science and Technology Institute and Museum of Science To Host Nanotech Awards Banquet and Education Fund Raiser Tuesday, May 9, in Boston
Reception and Dinner at the Hynes Will Honor Top Nanotechnology Achievements, With Proceeds Going to the Museum of Science for its Nanoscale Informal Science Education NetworkThe Nano Science and Technology Institute (NSTI) and the Museum of Science announced earlier this month the program for its national nanotechnology awards banquet, to be held on Tuesday, May 9 at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, in conjunction with the Nanotech 2006 Conference and Trade Show. All proceeds from the evening will be donated to the Museum of Science for the Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network (NISE Network), a collaboration of multiple science museums and research institutions to develop and distribute innovative programs to engage Americans in nanoscale science and engineering education, research, and technology. The Museum of Science traveling lightning show and exhibit staff will be on hand to greet guests and answer their questions about the Museum’s exhibits and work.
As part of the fund raising event, the NSTI will present its Nanotechnology Excellence Awards designed to recognize outstanding technology achievements in both the scientific and entrepreneurial realms. The program will also feature guest speaker, Larry Bell, senior vice president for research, development and production at the Museum of Science. “NSTI is a leading voice in the field of nanotech and much like the Museum of Science, is fueled by its mission of generating increased awareness of and spurring innovation within industry,” notes Bell. “This awards banquet and fund raiser allows us to jointly recognize the outstanding achievements taking place in the industry while also giving us the opportunity to raise funds for ongoing education and innovation.”
Tickets must be purchased in advance for the NSTI Nanotechnology Excellence Awards banquet and fund raiser, and tickets are $100 per person, which includes Museum donation, networking reception, dinner, and awards ceremony.
