Penn Engineering's Nano-MSE Program's Nano Quakers (NanoQ) is run by the current Nano-MSE students. Each year, the group organizes events that help students build community, amass resources, recreate and connect with each other during their time at Penn. On this page, students can find out more about events and activities hosted by NanoQ.

Upcoming Events

Nano Night
September 8, 2020
7 pm – 8 pm, Philadelphia time

The first week of classes can be taxing. We know the feeling. To help students catch a breather and relax we plan to hold a virtual welcome party for current and new students alike. We will have some fun icebreakers and events planned to help you relax and connect with your fellow Nano Quakers.

Notes: Information to connect to the event will be sent out over the Nano Student Listserv.
