Size does matter: Explore, Design & Touch the Nanoworld

General description

Have you ever wondered what the microscopic world looks like? Did you know that nearly one third of all electron microscopes are made in Brno? Do you want to see things that are a thousand times thinner than your hair is? With us you can! You will find out about LIBS, SEM, EBL, XPS, graphene...and much more. Sounds unfamiliar? Doesn‘t matter. Together we can learn and explore the world of nanotechnology under microscopes.

Do you want to

...explore the nanotechnology your own nanoworld

...use the most modern microscopes

...see our beautiful country

...know why the size really matters?

If you say YES at least once, come and join us on our BEST summer course in Brno.
As we are celebrating our 10th anniversary in BEST Brno, this course is going to be legendary! Just apply and come to learn more with experts from Brno University of Technology and worldwide renowned companies like Tescan and FEI. These partners of ours will provide company visits and lectures in laboratories. We promise you lots of fun, joy, BEST people, crazy parties, new friends and the BEST moments of your life!
Dragons from Brno are looking forward to seeing you!
