The second Inn.Otech program, run by STMicroelectronics, Soitec, and Grenoble Institute of Technology will give 72 local high-school sophomores a chance to immerse themselves in the world of microelectronics and semiconductors. The program was set up to bust some myths about careers in science and industry and spark interest in careers in these fields.
Each of the sessions, to be held in March and April, will enroll 36 students. The groups will spend a day at STMicroelectronics, a day at Soitec, and a day at Grenoble Institute of Technology’s Phelma engineering school. They will tour the MINATEC showroom, participate in CAD and cleanroom workshops at CIME Nanotech, make meringue using liquid nitrogen at LMGP, and discover holograms at IMEP-LaHC. Phelma faculty members will present the school’s science programs to aid the students in their future academic and career choices.
