Stone Implements Outreach ProgramMarch 19, 2012
In August 2011, Dr. Tonya Stone, an Assistant Professor in Mechanical Engineering, implemented The NanoClub, an outreach program at the Boys and Girls Club of Starkville funded through a National Science Foundation BRIGE grant and supported by the Center for Advanced Vehicular Systems and the Mechanical Engineering Department at Mississippi State University (MSU).
The NanoClub meets every Friday afternoon from 3:30-5:30 p.m. and services fourteen students in grades sixth through ninth. With the assistance of undergraduate students leading the activities, the Nanoclub is able to achieve its primary goal, which is to expose minority students at the Starkville Boy and Girls Club to nanotechnology through activities and experiments designed to boost their critical thinking and analytical skills.
