Nano Mini Exhibition

*Children must be with a parent/guardian 

 

Nano Mini-Exhibition, an interactive exhibition that engages family audiences in nanoscale science, engineering, and technology, is on loan to us from our friends at Children’s Museum in Oak Lawn. Nano’s hands-on exhibits present the basics of nanoscience and engineering, introduces real world applications, and explores the societal and ethical implications of this new technology. Nano was created by the Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network

(NISE Network) with support from the National Science Foundation.
