POTSDAM -- A Clarkson professor for the Center for Advanced Materials Processing (CAMP) has shared his experiences with three recent presentations.

Richard Partch has been teaching at Clarkson University since 1965, but he also works with teens, teachers, manufacturers, and elder hostel participants.

Partch’s work at CAMP involves computer chips, heat/energy control, medicine, and wind impacts.

He presented Nov. 5 in Rochester at the 2013 Annual Science Teachers Association meeting on "Nanotechnology Solutions for Cancer and Drug Overdoses."

On Oct. 4 he represented Clarkson at the St. Lawrence County National Manufacturers Day event organized by NNY CITEC. Regional pre-college teachers, school counselors and some students in tech prep programs attended.

Partch discussed the diverse technology research and development opportunities in engineering, math and science at Clarkson.

He also spent two weeks in Spain in September as a guest at the EDIBON Company in Madrid and an invited speaker and session chair at the three-day 2013 International NANOSMAT Conference in Granada.
