NSCC’s Nanotechnology is on the Cutting Edge of a Giant Breakthrough

Nanotechnology, a degree program at North Seattle Community College, may be serving up smaller, faster, more powerful computer chips than ever.  IBM’s most recent breakthrough, using carbon nanotechnology, allowed nanotechnicians to pack more than 10,000 working transistors on a single chip.  Not only are there more transistors in less space, but they are Super Transistors, outperforming their silicon counterparts in every way.  For consumers, this means thinner laptops and smaller phones that do more than anything you’ve owned before.

Unique Integrated Studies Class: “From Africa to Wall Street”

Course instructors Benjamin Abe (anthropology) and Thomas Cook (economics) have created a unique learning environment online for “From Africa to Wall Street”. Abe interviews workers in myriad settings on the African continent, posts the video material, and then you analyze it in terms of ideas and principles from the course. The video material is a supplement to the book perspective you might get in a traditional anthropology or economics course. If you cannot be in Africa, having an instructor there is the next best thing!
