What is Nanomedicine? This is a narrated-and-captioned 2.5 minute video which plays in English or Spanish. Colorful animation and researcher commentary provide a brief overview of some of the basic ideas and goals of nanomedicine.
"Nanotechnology: What's the Big Deal?" is a video introduction to the Intro to Nanotechnology exhibition. Get a broad overview of the unique challenges and opportunities presented by nanoscale science, and dive into the super tiny scale of nanotechnology.
What is Nanomedicine?
This is the introductory component for the Nanomedicine exhibit package. The structure includes a text panel and a narrated-and-captioned 2.5 minute video which plays on demand in either English or Spanish on a 32-inch LCD screen. The video's colorful animation and researcher commentary complements the accompanying text panel to provide a brief overview of some of the basic ideas and goals of nanomedicine.
This is a large group version of the Surface Area program. In this interactive stage presentation, audience members are measured in nanometers and demonstrate the effectiveness of "nano" silver in killing germs. Other highlights include a fireball that starts and ends the show. Visitors learn that nanoparticles behave differently, in part because they have a high surface area to volume ratio.
NanoBuzz is a web-based kiosk featuring exhibit-ready access to current nanoscale science, technology and engineering and emerging research in the news. Website includes four online puzzle games: Help assemble the carbon nanotubes, Help filter the water, Try to find the nanoparticle, and Test your nanotech memory.
The NISE Network has created a website for public audiences featuring links to videos, audio material, podcasts, games, DIY activities, and NanoDays information for the public. The site also features information about the Nano mini-exhibition including audio description files in both English and Spanish. The Spanish version of the website includes links to Spanish language resources when available.

This interactive animation is a modern version of the classic powers of ten video. It takes you all the way from the (estimated) outer reaches of the universe down to the length of a Planck. Somewhere in the middle, the animation let's you explore the nano-scale. Click on different objects as they zoom by to learn more.
This cart demo is about piezoelectricity - how some crystals produce electricity when you squeeze them. Visitors learn about the history of piezoelectricity, how it's used, and how it's applied in nanotechnology. They make electric sparks, handle models and listen to cheesy music.
Strange Matter is a traveling exhibition developed by the Ontario Science Center and presented by the Materials Research Society with the support of the National Science Foundation. Over a dozen hands-on experiences and exhibits give you a close encounter with the amazing world of modern materials and materials science. Two versions of the exhibition are available to tour, 6,000 square foot and 1,500 - 2,000 square foot.
