Imagine, discover, and explore a world that's too small to see. Nano Days is a nationwide celebration of nanoscale science, and you're invited! Come celebrate with us and enjoy nano-related activities throughout the Exhibit Halls, including the special events listed below.
Nano Days 2016 will include the following activities:
Join virtuoso performers Dan and Joel as they provide a comic and unforgettable introduction to atoms, molecules, and nanoscale forces while juggling everything from baseball bats to potted plants — even while atop seven-foot unicycles! 40 minutes, 12:00 and 2:00 pm; Cahners Theater, Blue Wing, Level 2
Have fun exploring nanoscience concepts with scientists and engineers from from local universities. 11:00 am – 3:00 pm; Blue Wing, Lower Level
Watch live presentations by leading researchers in the field of nanotechnology, and learn how they use nanotechnology to tackle real-world engineering problems. 20 minutes, 11:30 am, 12:30 pm, and 2:30 pm. Gordon Current Science & Technology Center, Blue Wing, Level 1
Learn about the tiny nanostructures that give beautiful colors to butterfly wings and self-cleaning properties to leaves. 11:00 am – 3:00 pm; Butterfly Garden, Blue Wing, Level 2
Visit our Hands-On Laboratory to explore nanoscale science and engineering through hands-on activities and learn how nanoscientists are creating new materials and technologies. 1:30 – 3:30 pm; Suit/Cabot Lab, Red Wing, Lower Level
Nano Days at the Museum of Science is sponsored by the Center for Integrated Quantum Materials headquartered at Harvard University, MIT, Howard University and the Museum of Science; by the Scalable Nanomanufacturing Research project: "Continuous, Large-Scale Nanocomposite Production via Micellular Electrospray" headquartered at The Ohio State University; and by the Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network headquartered at the Museum of Science.
