Tuesday, March 31st from 6 – 8 pm in the EGSC Statesboro Campus Atrium
NanoDays at East Georgia State College is part of a nationwide festival of educational programs about nanoscale science and engineering.
NanoDays is organized by the Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network (NISE Net), and takes place nationally from March 28 – April 5, 2015. This community-based event is the largest public outreach effort in nanoscale informal science education and involves science museums, research centers, and universities from Puerto Rico to Alaska.
NanoDays celebrations bring university researchers together with science educators to create learning experiences for both children and adults to explore the miniscule world of atoms, molecules, and nanoscale forces. Most NanoDays events combine fun hands-on activities with presentations on current research. A range of exciting NanoDays programs demonstrate the special and unexpected properties found at the nanoscale, examine tools used by nanoscientists, showcase nano materials with spectacular promise, and invite discussion of technology and society.
The local community can enjoy many of these activities. Visitors can experience the power of science fiction storytelling—creating their own imagined future full of new nanotechnologies. Hands-on activities invite visitors to explore polarized light, investigate how scientists use special tools to study tiny things, and imagine how nanotechnology could change how we eat! Other activities include experimenting with heat transfer and completing an electrical circuit using the world’s thinnest material.
