Nerd Nite Ann Arbor features speakers who are passionate about anything from Star Trek ethics to the history of Ann Arbor. We are glad to partner with them to bring some science to the Nerd Nite stage. Each event has about three speakers and this particular event features one of our RELATE workshop participants.
Using Nano-electronics to Develop a Smart Planet
A discussion with Matt DeJarald
Imagine having a refrigerator that can tell you when food has spoiled! The next technological revolution will be turning every appliance we use into a smart device. To create these devices we need tiny sensors to allow the electronics to interact with the environment. Unfortunately, today these sensors are too large or too expensive. Luckily, engineers are working to reduce this sensor size and cost with the help of nano-sized electronics.
