"Exploring Tools - Mitten Challenge" is a hands on activity in which visitors build a Lego® structure while wearing mittens. They learn that it is difficult to build small things when your tools are too big.
- Scientists and engineers need special tools and equipment to work on the nanoscale.
- In the field of nanotechnology, researcher study and make tiny things that are measured in nanometers.
- Scientists and engineers have formed the interdisciplinary field of nanotechnology by investigating properties and manipulating matter at the nanoscale.
