Nano – Imagine and discover what you can’t see!

Join us to imagine and discover the nanoscale world – a world so tiny it’s too small to see! This exhibition, sprinkled throughout the Museum, includes hands-on, interactive exhibits that invite exploration of nano phenomena and real world applications and implications.

Talking Tiny

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. Throughout the exhibition, interactive panels provide information on tiny solution for big problems, exhibiting technologies inspired by nature, and different perspectives on nanotechnology.

Nano is produced by the Nanoscale Informal Science Network (NISE Network) with fudnign from the National Science Foundation (NSF).
