The lighter side of nano: moleculariums and the real small world

Abstract:
In February, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute debuted a 20-minute animated show that places viewers amid molecules. The ultra-modern animated program showing in the Children’s Museum of Science and Technology near Troy, N.Y., lets kids hang with the nanokind as oxygen and hydrogen characters form water molecules and morph from gas to solid to liquid.

“Once I looked at the (planetarium) dome I knew we could immerse people in the material,” said Linda Schadler, a materials science professor at RPI and team leader for the project. “That’s how materials engineers think. They picture themselves inside the material.”
