Zyvex partners with School of Mines (Keloland.com)
- A high tech company that works with the smallest materials in science is coming to South Dakota.
With the help of a projector, students and visitors at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology are able to view what they normally couldn't see with their own eyes-- nanotechnolgy at work.
Governor Mike Rounds said, "South Dakota is one of those states in which we have a long way to come in terms of developing technology and commitments with technology companies."
The state took a step towards that goal today, by announcing a partnership with Zyvex, a Texas based company that specializes in creating tools and services to help scientists work with atoms and molecules.
Zyvex CEO Jim Von Ehr said, "Well this is a very persuasive place. They came and approached me about a year ago and I really ought to come here and they wanted to get involved in nanotechnology and I thought at the time, so do a lot places." More here
