The Birck Nanotechnology Center at Purdue has been a place I have been very interested in since taking a field trip there as a senior in a high school advanced placement chemistry class. While taking a guided tour around the Nanotechnology building, I learned a great deal of totally new information. A fact that I will always remember is that if a human took steps in nanometers, it would take 105 days, 17 hours, and 42 minutes to walk one centimeter. To think that these people worked on such a small scale in their everyday occupations fascinated me. Colby, Vinny, and I chose the Birck Nanotechnology Center for our field site to obtain a greater knowledge about the subject of nanotechnology itself and to learn what an engineer in the nanotechnology field would do. From the exterior, the Nanotechnology Center is one of the most modern building designs on campus. A mixture of aluminum cubic shapes protruding from the red brick lets you know that this is a building of science. Upon entering the Nanotechnology building this feeling is reinforced by the sterile appearance of the cleanest white floors and walls. The Nanotechnology building houses many offices for professors and graduate students on the bottom floor. Also on the bottom floor is the atrium. The atrium is filled with posters and displays teaching students and adults what the cutting-edge field
