JSNN Campus

Hackathon Weekend - Nov. 7-8

The Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering is a unique partnership between A&T State University and The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. It features over 100,000 square feet of academic and industrial research and learning space, featuring scientific equipment paralleled by only a handful of facilities in the world.

The Joint School is a testament to how science, engineering and technology have always been cornerstones of the Triad—and how Code for Greensboro, its members, and Greensboro's residents are working hard to keep it that way.
