NanoJapan visitors come out for Owls

Fourteen students from Japan spent time at Rice in February as part of a Tokyo-based English discussion group run by Keiko Packard. Packard helps organize Rice’s NanoJapan program, through which American university students study and work in Japanese research labs every summer. The visitors and their guides, Rice students and NanoJapan veterans Dante Zakhidov and J.J. Allred (center rear), took in the Rice-Purdue baseball game at Reckling Park during a break from discussions with Rice students and scientists. RiceEmpower and TeraNano/NanoJapan, supported by a National Science Foundation Partnerships for International Research and Education grant, co-hosted the visit.
