NanoDays - April 3-12, 2015

Event Description

NanoDays is a nationwide festival of educational programs about nanoscale science and engineering and its potential impact on the future. The Bradbury Science Museum celebrates NanoDays during Spring Break week, April 3-12, 2015.

At the nanoscale—the scale of atoms and molecules—many common materials exhibit unusual properties. Our ability to manipulate matter at this microscopic size enables innovations that were never before possible. Using these advancements, nanotechnology is revolutionizing how we research and develop medicine, computing, new materials, food, energy, and so many other things we rely on.

At NanoDays, a range of exciting programs will demonstrate the special and unexpected properties found at the nanoscale. By combining hands-on activities with presentations on current research, this event features new and unique learning experiences for both children and adults.

WHAT TO EXPECT:

  • Hands-on, table-top activities all week
  • Special Demonstrations at 11 AM and 2 PM on Tuesday (4/7) through Thursday (4/9)
  • Fun Films about Nano at 1 PM daily
  • The Art of Nanoscience on display all week
