IAP 2022—nanoStories: Workshop on science communication at the nanoscale; register by Jan. 3

During MIT's Independent Activities Period (IAP), MIT.nano will offer the class, "nanoStories: Workshop on science communication at the nanoscale." Guided by instructors, in each two-hour class students will explore a new topic, jointly developing an instructional narrative to be told in text, video, and/or interactive multimedia. Outside of MIT labs, nanoscience and nanotechnology appear mysterious. Help us demystify them!

Registration deadline: January 3, 2022. Open to MIT community, limited to 60 participants. To receive course credit (optional), register for 6.S090 (U, 6-units).
