The Silicon Run film series has become a standard of instruction at Level One Communications for several years now.

New Film on Nanoelectronics in Pre-production!

Our final addition to the Silicon Run Series will be a film on nanoelectronics. NSF logoPrincipal investigator Ruth Carranza, with sponsoring research organization Pellet Productions, has been awarded a grant from the National Science Foundation to begin pre-production.

Workshop with Educators

Our first research activity was a workshop in November 2015 at Stanford, which was attended by ten undergraduate science professors from »read more
