Education & Outreach

The NUANCE Center actively participates in outreach and educational programs, through collaborative and individual research, internationally and within the Northwestern University community. Our programs are well-known for the development of an outstanding, well-trained and highly informed undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral workforce in nanoscience and nanotechnology.

Local teachers, museums and members of the community are encouraged to join the NUANCE family through open house visits and demonstrations.


Women In Nano

NUANCE is celebrating Women in History Month! We asked nanoscientists to honor the woman or women who inspire or have inspired them to pursue their research.

Check out these Women in Nano inspirations and our Women In Microscopy Conference!

Earth Day!

We are excited to highlight the work of two brilliant scientists whose research in the field of Environmental Science is helping us better understand, anticipate, and mitigate the effects of pollution and climate change.
