Last year, Nick Bianchi was learning physics from a textbook. Now, the 18-year-old is a freshman studying three-dimensional models of structures at the atomic level at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering at the University at Albany. He’s adjusted his entire learning style to a million dollar computer lab where he can apply nanoscale technology to real-world issues. On Thursday, he mapped a miniscule circuit board as one of his final projects in the first semester of undergraduate-level coursework. “You get more out of this because you’re getting more than a picture out of a textbook,” Bianchi said.
