Our Films

Silicon Run’s nine award winning educational films explore the fascinating process of semiconductor manufacturing from A to Z. Shot on site and illustrated with rich animations, Silicon Run’s films provide in-depth studies of such topics as: MEMS (microelectromechanical systems), Nanotechnology, Lithography, Implantation, Deposition, Etch, front end and back end semiconductor manufacturing (Silicon Run I and II) and Silicon Run LITE (an overview film useful as an intro).

These films are really nice. They show in a short time what it takes a long time to tell. We use them in our technology courses and our outreach to high schools, vocational schools and business groups such as Rotary. Student teachers find them useful too.R. Dreucci

My class loved Silicon Run Lite. Great response! It got them all excited and they asked very good questions.Bruce Kawanami

I market semiconductors and I had no idea of the complexity involved in their manufacture – it was sort of like a black art – until I saw the Silicon Run film. I found the information very usefu and approachable.Theresa Buckholz
