Penn Summer Science Academy

July 2016

This July, Prof. Drndic gave a research presentation to high school students from the Penn Summer Science Academy (PSSA). Roughly 40 students went on a tour of our lab, in coordination with Bill Berner, where they learned about the process of fabricating and testing a solid-state nanopore. They also learned about the wide variety of techniques and instrumentation that we use: chemical vapor deposition, photolithography, electron beam nanosculpting, and DNA translocation experiments.
