    The Amazing Nano Brothers Juggling Show

April 8, 2017

NanoDays 2017

Imagine, discover, and explore a world that's too small to see. NanoDays is a museumwide celebration of nanoscale and quantum science, and you're invited! Come celebrate with us and enjoy nano-related activities throughout the Exhibit Halls, including the special events listed below.

 

Explore Hands-On Nano

Have fun exploring nanoscience concepts with young scientists and engineers from Boston University, Harvard University, Howard University, MIT, Mount Holyoke College, Northeastern University, and the University of Massachusetts-Lowell.

 

Special Presentations

Watch live presentations by leading researchers and learn how they use nanotechnology and quantum science to tackle real-world challenges. Gordon Current Science & Technology Center Stage, Blue Wing, Level 1

Special presentations include:

  • 11:30 - "From Chemical Engineer to Cancer Warrior," Megan Litwhiler, MOS
  • 12:30 - "Welcome to Flatland! 2-D Materials in the Quantum Age," Pablo Jarillo-Herrero, MIT
  • 1:30 - "From Slime to Super Fiber: A Nano-Composite Story," Marilyn Minus, Northeastern University
  • 2:30 - "Can a Super-Computer Design a Super Material?," Steven Richardson, Howard University and MIT

 

The Amazing Nano Brothers Juggling Show

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! Performances at 1:00 and 3:00 pm in Cahners Theater.

 

Nanotech in Our Lives

Explore nanotech-enhanced products and learn about the science that makes them work. Featuring guest scientists from Raytheon and Merck

 

Discover Nano in Nature

Visit the Butterfly Garden to learn about the tiny nanostructures that give beautiful colors to butterfly wings and self-cleaning properties to leaves.

 

You're the Nanoscientist!

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.

 

This year’s NanoDays at the Museum of Science (MOS) is brought to you with support from the National Science Foundation through the Center for Integrated Quantum Materials at Harvard University, MIT, Howard University, and MOS (1231319); and the Scalable Nano-Manufacturing research project at The Ohio State University and MOS (1344567). NanoDays originated at MOS with support from the NISE Network (0940143).
