Upcoming Events for CNF REU + CNF-Hosted Students    

Please note, for clarity and ease, there are two groups for these events:
[1] CNF 5 = Bard, Dash, Jenkins-Johnston, Wang, Zheng
[2] ALL 6 = Bard, Chen, Dash, Jenkins-Johnston, Wang, Zheng
When an event lists "CNF 5" or "ALL 6" it is mandatory for that group.
Otherwise, the event will be listed as OPTIONAL.


ALSO! Because this is a public page, all zoom links are removed. See the individual emails to you, the interns, for the zoom links!


Free Local Activities at Stewart Park, starting June 23rd


CCMR offers two scientific talks, both of which are MANDATORY for you all. Please register (when you see the email) and get these on your calendar. Thank you!

Ethics Presentation by Prof. Paul McEuen
Department of Physics, Thursday, July 1st at 10 am, via Zoom

Starting from a case study of scientific misconduct uncovered with assistance from McEuen — the Hendrik Schön case at Bell Labs — the human and intellectual cost of scientific misconduct will be discussed in a group setting. The workshop will also discuss how scientists can give back to society; issues ranging from choosing research that is meaningful to conveying science to the government and society at large.

Scientific Presentation Skills by Prof. Melissa Hines
Department of Chemistry, Monday, August 2nd at 11 am, via Zoom

(NOTE: This presentation is just before our NNCI REU Convocation event starts at 12:00 p.m., so you'll have to leave this a little early to get to that on time.)

All students will attend an interactive workshop on public speaking and scientific presentation. Topics covered include: how to improve your communication skills, how to give a presentation that effectively illustrates the focus of your research, and how to avoid common pitfalls.



Graduate Student Panel Discussion for Underrepresented REU Students
Friday, July 30, 2021
12:00 - 1:30 PM
Details will be emailed to you!


Monday-Thursday, August 2-5, CNF 5 = The NNCI REU Convocation

This year the network REU convocation is Tuesday-Thursday, August 3-5, 12 noon to 5 pm east coast time (with breaks, of course). The event starts, however, on Monday the 2nd at 12 noon with Jan Youtie, SENIC’s SEI coordinator, “Pitch Your Future” activity with REU students. The activity is like shark tank -- the students will be broken into groups and have to prepare to pitch a future nanotechnology-enabled product. Jan has a worksheet with questions to help guide them. Then each group will pitch to a panel of judges and answer questions from the audience.


Thursday, August 5, 5:00 - 6:30 PM, ALL 6 = REU Cornell Farewell-a-Palooza


Friday, August 13, FINAL REPORTS DUE!
