We’ve heard that some NanoDays 2012 kit recipients are having trouble getting the Graphene activity to work. If you can’t get the bulb to light, here are a few solutions you might try:
New Website Feature!
We have recently added a new interactive way to quickly look through the entire online website of educational products.
Whether your team includes an army of local graduate students, or a handful of museum educators, or a mix of volunteers, scientists, and industry partners, we want to see who they are! Snap a picture of your NanoDays team this year (be sure to have anyone in the photo sign a release) and send it our way!

NanoDays 2012 is just around the corner! We'd love to hear your 140-character stories, comments, and/or advice on Twitter. Just be sure to use #nanodays. Good luck with your planning and preparation!

Ok, no more rhyming. It’s starting to get confining. (ok, seriously…)
