The Micro Nano Technology (MNT) Special Interest Group (SIG) Meeting is an all-day event on July 18, 2017 at HI-TEC in Salt Lake City, Utah. This meeting is a venue to share ideas and learn from others who work to educate technicians, a place to stay on the forefront of industry and workforce needs, and a forum to network and share ideas on ways to strengthen and augment workforce development programs through educational partnerships with industry for tomorrow's micro and nano technology workforce. Simply stated, the goals of the MNT SIG are threefold: • Increase knowledge and awareness of micro and nano science/technologies among STEM educators in secondary and post-secondary institutions. • Increase participation, collaboration, and networking with a diverse set of educators, industry representatives, students and administrators in micro/nano related branches of STEM. • Provide a perspective from students and working micro and nano technical professionals (including technicians) on skills preparation in technical education programs.
