MS students "suit up" during Global Foundries Ambassadors' visit

25 middle school students fully outfitted in white body suits, hats, masks, and eyewear, learning about clean technologyFebruary 14, 2018 — Thanks to the Global Foundries Ambassadors who visited on Feb 6th, seventh-graders at the Middle School got to try on these “bunny suits” that microchip manufacturers wear in the clean rooms at Fab 8 in Malta!

The suits are designed to keep dust in, and to conduct electric current so static electricity does not build up.

Ambassadors spent their day interacting with students (including this accelerated biology class) to talk about new technologies in nanoscience, and answer questions about microchip fabrication. Their visit was awesome!
