The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History will be opening “Nano,” an exhibit about big ideas that come from the small world of nanoscience. The exhibit, which was designed by the Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network (NISE Network), will open on July 14, 2012, for permanent exhibition.
“Nano: Imagine and discover a world you can’t see” is designed for families. The exhibit is comprised of several stations with hands-on activities:
“Nanoscale may be really small, but this exhibit is big on fun and learning,” said Jim Walther, Director of the Museum. “Nanotechnology is already having a huge impact on our world and families can learn about it here.”
The Museum was one of many sites around the United States to receive the exhibition after completing a competitive application process. The exhibition award is based on the Museum’s ability to provide the educational experiences that are the mission of the NISE Network.
Viewing the exhibit is free with the admission of $8 for adults and $7 for youth and seniors.
