Some MIT nanotechnology activities are targeted at alumni, but you may be able to get in the door at a higher price:
It’s a Small World
November 15, 2007
MIT Alumni Association, in conjunction with regional Clubs, is planning two webcasts and receptions for alumni in Cambridge and around the world for the upcoming year. These events will not only highlight MIT expertise, but will also be an opportunity to socialize and network, and hopefully become better connected to local alumni and MIT.
The first broadcast, “It’s a Small World,” will take place on November 15 and will include a panel of three MIT faculty members, from a variety of disciplines and research areas, discussing the various aspects of nanotechnology and the ways in which MIT is paving the way in this field. The panel presentation will be webcast from Cambridge to cities around the world. We are actively recruiting regional viewing sites.
