Karine Thate is a program manager and educator at the Museum of Science Boston (MOS). Her current work focuses on the topic of nanoscale science and engineering and involves supporting the public engagement efforts of two local NSF Nanoscale Science and Engineering Centers (NSECs). With the MOS since 2009, Karine develops and delivers museum programs, podcasts and special events for public audiences as well as provides professional development workshops for early career researchers. Much of her work is in support of the Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network.

Created for general public audiences at the Museum of Science Boston, The Tiny Solutions to Our Big Energy Problem Program offered a brief overview of energy sources and our current energy crisis and discussed a variety of ways that nanotechnology can improve the way we harness energy (improving solar cells), distribute energy (carbon nanotube transmission lines) and use energy (nanotech-enhanced LED bulbs).
