The International Year of Crystallography 2014 (IYCr2014) commemorates not only the centennial of X-ray diffraction, which allowed the detailed study of crystalline material, but also the 400th anniversary of Kepler’s observation in 1611 of the symmetrical form of ice crystals, which began the wider study of the role of symmetry in matter.
Join us for a discussion about the International Year of Light! In 2013, the United Nations proclaimed 2015 as the International Year of Light (IYL). More than 100 organizations from more than 85 countries are participating in IYL. During this conversation we will share light-related activities and videos developed by the NISE Network. We’ll also discuss scientific organizations that would make great partners for IYL events.
Since 2008, NanoDays activities have been used to engage all types of audiences and families within the cutting-edge field of nanotechnology. When engaging different audiences, such as younger audiences including children ages 3-8, it is important to target your message in a language that is both understandable and engaging for that age group. Join us as NISE Net partners discuss their experiences working with younger audiences.
The International Year of Light and Light-Based Technologies (IYL 2015) is a global initiative that will highlight to the citizens of the world the importance of light and optical technologies in their lives, for their futures, and for the development of society. It is an unique opportunity to inspire, educate, and connect on a global scale.
How can you present the basics of nano in just an hour or two? Join this discussion to learn how your colleagues introduce nano. We’ll share our favorite examples, activities, and videos. Please join us and bring your ideas and questions, as there will be lots of time for discussion.
