NanoDays 2014 physical kit applications are now available! All applications are due December 1st, 2013.
What could YOU do for NanoDays? NanoDays activities bring university researchers together with science museum educators, creating unique learning experiences. NanoDays engages people of all ages in a miniscule world where materials have special properties and new technologies have spectacular promise. Many NanoDays celebrations will combine simple hands-on activities for young people with events exploring current research for adults. NanoDays activities demonstrate different, unexpected properties of materials at the nanoscale -- sand that won’t get wet even under water, water that won’t spill from a teacup, and colors that depend upon particle size. Some NanoDays participants host public forums, discussions about the risks and benefits of particular applications of nanotechnology. Many participating universities host public tours of their laboratories that work with nanoscale science and technology.
