Partner Highlight: Nano Beyond NanoDays! Rochester Museum & Science Center (RMSC)

RMSC Rochester Museum and Science Center logoLike many communities around the country Rochester, New York goes all out celebrating NanoDays. Visitors to the Rochester Museum & Science Center (RMSC) joined museum staff and volunteers as well as staff and students from the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) and University of Rochester for a fun filled weekend at the end of March, but as Joelle Adolfi, Manager of Youth and Family Programs, states, nano related programing doesn’t end there. There’s so much more!


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

Christina Akers

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!!!
