Smith County High School Field Trip

Posted by on Thursday, April 28, 2022 in News.

Every guest who walks by the cleanroom window in the Vanderbilt Engineering and Science Building wonders what it would be like to get to gown up and tour the facilities themselves. Nine students from Smith County High School got to make that dream a reality while participating in the VINSE High School Field Trip Program.

The junior and senior students, chaperoned by teachers Karly Keen and Denise Hackett, got to go inside the VINSE cleanroom and experience hands-on how nano and microscale devices are built. Outreach experiences have been tailored to fit into a variety of science courses with students building and testing silicon solar cells, learning how microchips are made, or manipulating tiny amounts of fluid for medical applications.
