About this event
(Free Event) The Nebraska Center for Materials and Nanoscience (NCMN) and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) will hold Lincoln's annual NanoDays Saturday, April 1 from 1 to 4 pm in H&M Court. The newest, most transformative realm of scientific discovery and invention is happening at the nanoscale, many times smaller than the microscopic level. To celebrate its existing science, students, teachers and their families are invited to be a part of this free, educational festival. NanoDays offers engaging, hands-on activities to explore the miniscule world of atoms, molecules and nanoscale forces. Participants will get to: Construct their own nanomaterials Investigate how ink jet printers work Experiment with ways of bending light to make objects invisible Chat with UNL faculty and graduate students Plus, the first 100 student attendees who visit all ten interactive demonstration tables are eligible for a prize AND a nanoscience education kit will be awarded to the elementary and middle schools with the most student attendees. NanoDays is part of a nationwide festival of educational programs about nanoscale science and engineering sponsored by the NISE Net program and funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF).
