Student Research Poster Session at CHTM

July 23, 2018

Please join CHTM on Friday, July 27th for the ERC student researcher poster session.

Strain-free Solar Cells. A User-Friendly Photolithography Station. Microporous silica membranes. High School researchers working in 3 of UNM’s 4 National Science Foundation Engineering Research Centers (ERC) will present their summer projects at the Center for High Technology Materials on Friday July 27 from 1:00-2:00 pm in Room 103.   Students working in nanosciences in the US Army Research & Engineering Apprenticeship Program are also participating. Internships are key to helping students refine their educational and career goals, deepen their STEM understanding and transition to college. “It also gave me life-long mentors,” says Amy Soudachanh, a former QESST ERC intern who now works at Sandia National Laboratories and studies physics at UNM.

The ERCs include: NASCENT (Nanosystems Engineering Research Center for Nanomanufacturing Systems for Mobile Computing and Mobile Energy Technologies), CISTAR (Center for Innovative and Strategic Transformation of Alkane Resources) and QESST (The Quantum Energy and Sustainable Solar Technologies). The goal of thes 10-year, multi-institutional grants is to integrate engineering research and education with technological innovation ot transform national prosperity, health, and security.
