EXPERIENCE NANO Imagine and Discover a World You Can’t See!
Mini Exhibition extended through January 3, 2014
DISCOVERY Children’s Museum is hosting a new engaging mini-exhibition for family audiences about nanoscale science, technology and engineering (nano). Visit the all-new children’s museum to imagine and discover the nanoscale world – a world so tiny it’s too small to see. The 400-square foot exhibit includes hands-on, interactive acitivities that invite exploration of nano phenomena and real world applications and implications.
At the Small, Smaller Nano exhibit, you can play with magnets to explore how material behaves differently at different sizes. At the Build a Giant Carbon Nanotube exhibit you can use foam construction pieces to make a large model of a tiny structure called a carbon nanotube. There are plenty of examples of nano in nature, technology and your own home. Where Can You Find Nano? lets you listen, look and touch to discover nano all around you. At Balance our Nano Future, a variety of blocks represent the challenge of trying to create a stable nano world – can you balance all the blocks on the tippy table? Throughout the exhibition, interactive panels provide information on tiny solutions for big problems, exciting technologies inspired by nature and different perspectives on nanotechnology. The Nano exhibition includes a seating area with comfortable furniture and additional reading material about this important topic.
