“What I do is simply help develop confidence in students.”
That’s Mike Zach’s mission with his exceptionally novel NanoFab Lab… in a Box!
Looking to inspire young people and help propel them in scientific careers, Zach took it upon himself to develop an affordable, self-automated, easy to use nanolab.
What Zach is doing is allowing students to understand complex science and have a hands-on experience in making patterned nanowires. Typically nanowires need a multimillion dollar lab to be produced, but Zach has streamlined this process in order to give high school-aged students all over the country a chance to immerse themselves in this seemingly limitless science.
“I’m just looking to get more students involved in electrochemistry… in the science,” said Zach.
