Each Thursday morning, New England Cable News anchors visit the Current Science & Technology Center at the Museum of Science via robotic cameras linked by fiber optics to their Needham, MA studio. Once a month, NSEC Education Associate Joel Rosenberg delivers lively three-minute presentations and demonstrations about nanotech research. The cablecasts are repeated throughout the day and archived at <www.mos.org/cst/nano>. This live cablecasting partnership was developed under the direction of NSEC Senior Investigator for Educational Outreach Carol Lynn Alpert, and is the first of its kind in the nation.
