Opportunity for nanotechnology tour open to
Herkimer County high-school students Aug. 20

July 30, 2014


High-school students in Herkimer County have the opportunity to sign up now to step into their future on Wednesday, Aug. 20, with a free tour of the SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering in Albany.

With nanotechnology jobs coming to the Mohawk Valley, the tour will give students an introduction to the massive employment possibilities that nanotechnologies can offer for skilled workers.

The Workforce Investment Board of Herkimer, Madison and Oneida Counties is sponsoring the free trip, and the project is funded by a grant secured from the New York State Higher Education Services Corp.

In October, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that New York state would invest $1.5 billion to create the Nano Utica project on the campus of the SUNY Institute of Technology in Marcy. The state budget included $180 million for the Quad C facility at SUNYIT, and in March, the SUNY Board approved merging SUNYIT and CNSE to create the SUNY Institute of Nanoscale Science, Engineering and Technology.

Students who sign up for this CNSE tour will depart at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 20, from Herkimer-Fulton-Hamilton-Otsego BOCES at 352 Gros Blvd. in Herkimer. Two coach buses will travel to SUNY CNSE, and the nanotechnology tours will last from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Lunch is provided on-site from 1-1:45 p.m. in Albany. Students will arrive back at Herkimer BOCES at 4 p.m.

To maximize the impact of the travel time, admissions experts from Herkimer College will talk to students about college admissions, including the many financial aid options that are available. Staff from the Herkimer Working Solutions Career Center will also be available to offer career counseling during the trip.

Space is limited, so interested students should contact either Herkimer BOCES Director of Academic Services Roberta Matthews (email: rmatthews@herkimer-boces.org or phone: 315-867-2032) or Herkimer Working Solutions Career Center Manager Karin Zipko (email: kzipko@herkimercounty.org or phone: 315-867-1459).

Adults also are invited to attend the event and will need to submit photo identification prior to the trip.
