Nano

"Nano: Imagine and discover the world you can't see" is an exhibit about big ideas that come from the small world of nanoscience. Visitors enjoy hands-on activities while learning about the huge impact nanotechnology is already having on our world. Guests will explore the progressively smaller magnetic materials of magnetite sand, iron power and ferrofluid in the activity "Small, Smaller, Nano," and everyone will feel like a scientist while building a giant carbon nanotube.
