Physics Students Visit Cornell UniversityOn November 4 th the OCS College Physics students visited Cornell University with Mr. Sharpsteen and Mr. Louis. While at Cornell, the students were given a tour of Cornell’s Nanoscale Facility and discussed the development and production of nanoscale technology for use in medical and robotic fields. The tour included hands on experimentation in the nanoscale demo lab.
After a short lunch in college town, OCS students attended a concert in Cornell’s McGraw Bell Tower. The students were able to interact with/watch Cornell’s current Chimes Master while he played and see the view from the top of the tower inside the bell chamber. Many thanks to Tom Pennell at the CNF and the Cornell Chimes Master!
