posted Jan 17, 2011, 11:58 AM by VP Academic
The Technology and Science Seminar Series is back with the first seminar of 2011!  We are very excited to once again get some speakers from industry to hold a seminar for us. 

Come on out next Wednesday, January 19th to listen to Andrew Lau and Eliza Boyce (both Fizz Alumni) from Zaber Technologies Inc give a talk about how it all began at Zaber, and the technology being currently developed.  Andrew is one of the founding members of Zaber, while Eliza is one of the mechanical design engineer currently employed there.

Title: Building a company -- one microstep at a time
Who: Andrew Lau and Eliza Boyce -- Zaber Technologies Inc.
When: Wednesday, January 19th @ 5:00 pm
Where: HENN 200


Zaber Technologies designs and manufacturers precision motion control devices. Basically they are tiny little robots that move very small distances (sub-micron) under computer control. These are used for everything from aligning components in laser systems to biomedical experiments. We have customers in 50+ countries around the world, and 20% of our employees are Fizzers.

We are going to talk about two things:

- How to start a high tech company with no money and no experience.
- How to achieve precision motion control with inexpensive and imprecise components.

As always, snacks and refreshments will be provided for those who attend.
