The Children's Museum of Houston's 1,350 square foot permanent exhibition, The Matter Factory, offers a glimpse into the concepts of materials science, including properties of matter and potential uses for different substances and smart materials. The exhibition invites children and families to explore how matter matters in our daily lives. Exhibits experiment with different properties of matter, test and sort materials based on their properties, and examine unique properties of emerging materials recently developed by scientists.
The NanoZone is both a website and a permanent exhibition at UC Berkeley's Lawrence Hall of Science. The exhibition introduces basic nanoscale and state-of-the-art nanotechnology science to an 8 to 14-year-old audience. Content focuses on the smallness of a nanometer, scientists as people, applications, and links between nanotechnology and nature.
