NanoDays at the Buffalo Museum of Science
March 30 - April 7, 11am-2pm
Included with general museum admission and free for BMS Members
Join the nationwide festival of educational programs about nanoscale science and engineering. The Buffalo Museum of Science will offer week-long NanoDays programs to demonstrate the special and unexpected properties found at the nanoscale – or one billionth of a meter! We’ll examine tools used by nanoscientists and showcase nano materials with spectacular promise.
Facilitated activities highlight unique properties of materials at the nanoscale that we cannot see in our “macro” world. For instance, did you know that at the nanoscale gold actually looks red? Discover many other nano innovations happening right now in the exciting world Nanotechnology and explore more with the Museum’s new Nano exhibit.
NanoDays is organized by the Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network (NISE Net), and takes place nationally from March 30-April 7, 2013. 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.
