National Nanotechnology Day 10.9.2019

What is nanotechology? How does it improve our daily lives?

This annual celebration, featuring a series of educational hands-on demonstrations throughout campus, aims to help raise awareness of nanotechnology, how it is currently used in products that enrich our daily lives, and the challenges and opportunities it holds for the future. This date, 10/9, pays homage to the nanometer scale, 10-9 meters.

From 11am – 2pm, you can try your hand at nanoscience at each of the following locations:

  • Sculpture Garden (Ferrofluids – Levitating Liquids)
  • Dickson Plaza South (Plasmonics & Scattering – Ancient Art from Gold)
  • Janss Terrace (Biopolymers – From Boba to Biology)
  • Inverted Fountain (Superhydrophobic Surfaces – Wash Like a Plant)

Not only will you learn about nanotechnology, but we’ll have nano prizes, science stickers, and more!

Complete all 4 stations for entry to a grand prize raffle.
