Permanent Exhibit

Explore the science of the super small in this exhibit developed by Museum-led NISE® Net (Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network). Learn how scientists can manipulate matter on a very tiny scale to build materials and devices used in computing, engineering, medicine, and other fields.

Interactive stations explain nanotechnology's varied applications, including tennis racquets made from carbon nanotubes, which are very light but are ten times stronger than steel, and "GreeneChip," a tiny device that can detect almost 2,000 pathogens, making it possible to detect diseases more accurately than ever before.
