Imagine, discover, and explore a world that's too small to see. NanoDays is a nationwide celebration of nanoscale science, and you're invited! Come celebrate with us and enjoy nano-related activities throughout the Exhibit Halls, including the special events listed below.
Have fun exploring nanoscience concepts with scientists and engineers from from Boston University, Harvard University, Howard University, MIT, Northeastern University, The Ohio State University, and the University of Massachusetts - Lowell. 11:00 am – 3:00 pm; Blue Wing, Lower Level
Watch live presentations by leading researchers and learn how they use nanotechnology to tackle real-world engineering problems.
Each presentation is 20 minutes
Gordon Current Science & Technology Center, Blue Wing, Level 1
Join virtuoso performers Dan and Joel as they provide a comic and unforgettable introduction to atoms, molecules, and nanoscale forces while juggling everything from baseball bats to potted plants — even while atop seven-foot unicycles! 40 minutes, 12:00 and 2:00 pm; Cahners Theater, Blue Wing, Level 2
Explore nanotech-enhanced products and learn about the science that makes them work. Featuring guest scientists from: Merck & Co., Nanocomp Technologies, Raytheon
Learn about the tiny nanostructures that give beautiful colors to butterfly wings and self-cleaning properties to leaves. 11:00 am – 3:00 pm; Butterfly Garden, Blue Wing, Level 2
Wonder what nanotechnology has to do with biology? Find out about bacteria-busting nanosilver and gecko-inspired adhesives and and how they might impact your life. Learn the science and weigh in with your opinion. 11:00 am – 3:00pm; Hall of Human Life, Green Wing, Level 2
Visit our Hands-On Laboratory to explore nanoscale science and engineering through hands-on activities and learn how nanoscientists are creating new materials and technologies. 1:30 – 3:30 pm; Suit/Cabot Lab, Red Wing, Lower Level
NanoDays at the Museum of Science is sponsored by the Center for Integrated Quantum Materials headquartered at Harvard University, MIT, Howard University and the Museum of Science; by the Scalable Nanomanufacturing Research project headquartered at The Ohio State University; and by the Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network headquartered at the Museum of Science.
