Topic
We can learn broader life lessons as we explore how the scientific method demonstrates that experimental failure is not final.

Micro- and nano-scaled materials and devices catch our attention for their novelty and foreign nature. They also make for pretty images of nearly atomic scale structures.

Nanoscaled materials and devices that leverage quantum or nearly quantum scales enable extraordinary behavioral changes that can be very useful in sensing and electronics.

Experimental research at these scales demonstrates what we think we know is not always everything that we need to know about how atoms and molecules interact with one another.

One experimental failure leads to understanding for the next. A life lesson under the microscope.

Join us early at 5:45 p.m. for conversation and a weather update.
