Join us Saturday, April 28, 2012 from 11am to 4pm at North Light Community Center, 175 Green Lane, and be part of a nationwide festival, organized by the Franklin Institute, of educational programs about nanoscale science and engineering. “Nano” comes from the Greek word meaning “dwarf”. The event, designed to raise public awareness, combines fun hands-on activities with presentations on current research.
Bring the family and experience many of these activities firsthand. Visitors will make some of their own nanomaterials using scotch-tape, investigate super thin materials used in solar cell technology,and change the color of a butterfly’s wings! Other activities include an “I Spy” Nano game and real nano gold. To learn more about this amazing field of science, click here.
