FW Museum of Science & History: Nano Days, March 28

March 24, 2009 · Filed Under Events and News 

How can something so small be such big fun? Find out on Saturday, March 28, during NanoDays, an annual event of the Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network. Join us from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. for hands-on activities that demonstrate and explain nanoscale technology, science and engineering. Just what IS nanoscale technology?? “Nano” is a suffix that denotes a size – in this case, one billionth of a measurement! So a nanometer is one billionth of a meter. We’ll be constructing models of carbon buckyballs, playing with ferrofluids, and other mind-expanding activities that break this technology down to size. It’ll be fun for everyone – big and small! NanoDays location and details will be posted on our Web site soon.
