Nano

A world so tiny it's too small to see!

Nano is an engaging exhibition about nanoscale science, technology, and engineering that includes hands-on, interactive exhibits that invite exploration of nano phenomena and real world applications and implications.

At the Small, Smaller, Nano exhibit, you can plan 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. 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.
