Congratulations to CRDM/GES students Elizabeth Pitts and Molly Storment.  They have been accepted to attend  the second annual Winter School on the Anticipatory Governance of Emerging Technologies  sponsored by the Center for Nanotechnology in Society at Arizona State University (CNS-ASU), January 3-10, 2014 at Saguaro Lake Ranch in Mesa, AZ.

The Winter School provides faculty and students opportunities to collaborate with CNS-ASU faculty researching emerging nanotechnologies and their social and cultural impacts.

Molly and Elizabeth will learn about the methods employed by CNS-ASU researchers, and will be guided in applying these methods to their own work in the IGERT and CRDM programs. Admission into this program, which is highly competitive, includes the costs of food and lodging for the week.

We will be shivering in the chilly drizzle of a NC winter as they enjoy the Arizona sunshine, but we look forward to hearing all about it when they return.
