If you're planning to use your graphene acitivity again (or use it on a regular basis), here are just a few things to keep in mind: It's best to remove the snap connectors from the battery, and disconnect the alligator clips to avoid accidental circuit closure while in storage.
What’s a Mini-Grant?
The NISE Network is making available a limited number of small, one-time awards to support initiatives by NISE Net partners to engage their local audiences in nanoscale science, engineering, and technology topics. Requests can be made for an award up to $3,000 dollars to fund a small project or be put towards a larger endeavor.
We have two randomly drawn winners who submitted their online NanoDays reports by the May 1st deadline. Both will be receivinig additional educaitonal materials to use with their visitors:
Tell us about your NanoDays 2012 event by filling out the NanoDays Online Report:
We ask that partners hosting NanoDays events report back to the Network about your experiences through this online survey. There are two sections in this survey:
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 2011 at the Sciencenter in Ithaca, NY
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!
Note: the Twitter bird was unavailable for this picture, so we got his cousin, Squawk, instead.
