April 4….Nano Day - Join the Science Spectrum and the Texas Tech Department of Mechanical Engineering Saturday, for NanoDay in the lobby. This FREE* event is a chance to communicate small science to a large audience! The world is full of things of all different sizes, and in everyday life you encounter things at least three different scale sizes: macroscale, microscale, and the nanoscale! Things at macroscale are observed with your eyes; they are large enough to see without technology. The microscale is seen through the lens of a microscope, and things at a nanoscale are so small that it takes very specialized technology to see and to understand! A nanometer is one billionth of a meter, so we are talking about science on the molecular level. Nanoscience has real world applications in Engineering, Medical sciences, Environmental sciences, Military applications, and even in Agriculture and the clothing we wear! Through a grant provided by NISE Network, NanoDay will feature hands-on science activities that demonstrate nanoscience. The Texas Tech Department of Mechanical Engineering will display their research on nanoscience that uses metallic materials. Learn what nano is, where we can find it around us, and how it can make the world a better place at NanoDay!

Enjoy These FREE* NanoActivities:

Heat Transfer – explore how nanomaterials transfer energy and heat differently
Thin Films Prism Art – use nano to deconstruct a prism into colors
Invisibility Cloak – see how light can refract to produce invisibility
Kinetic Sand – feel a nanosubstance change the properties of sand
Nano Fabric – see how nanoscience can be used to recreate unique properties in nature
All NanoDay activities are located in the lobby and are FREE* to the public.
Standard Museum Admission and OMNI Theater rates apply. Science Spectrum Museum, 2579 S. Loop 289; 11a.m. to 3 p.m.
