The ultimate reality TV: How the 2014 NanoDays Physical kit came to be!!!

By Christina Akers on March 18, 2014 | 0 comments

In 2014, our operation became so large that we had to take kit fabrication out of both the Science Museum of Minnesota’s shop and warehouse. We rented another warehouse offsite, where kit assembly consumed the space for over a month.  Some days you couldn’t even walk through the space there was some much going on!

Here we show you a high-speed version of our labor – five weeks wrapped up in two-minutes and twenty-two seconds!!!
