NanoDays! A celebration of the small

Wednesday, April 2, 2014, from 5:00pm to 7:00pm
Strand Union Building, Ballroom A

Nanoscale science and engineering will be celebrated at Montana State University on Wednesday, April 2 as part of a nationwide week of public outreach. The event is free and will help kids and adults understand nanoscience in a fun and easy-to-understand format.

Nanoscientists work with particles and devices between one and 100 nanometers in size (the head of a pin is 1,000,000 nanometers across). Through nanoscience, scientists have developed disease-fighting drugs, computer components, transparent sunscreen, ultra-strong sports equipment and many other applications.

At MSU, researchers are using nanoscience to develop targeted vaccines, magnetic materials for electronics, and catalysts for producing hydrogen. Nanoscience is an emerging field that blends chemistry, physics, engineering and other areas of science, and is one of the country's top research priorities.

Stop in anytime between 5pm and 7pm. Activities take place in the SUB Ballrooms.
