Exhibits allow children to enter world of the very, very small

Abstract:
Science learning isn't all in books. Sometimes you can hold it in your hand, walk through it, sit inside it, play with it. Those approaches are especially effective with children and can make abstract concepts easier to understand.

Take nanotechnology, for example. Over the last three years, elementary school children all over the United States have been learning about incomprehensibly tiny things by walking through and playing with very large and colorful things in a traveling science museum exhibition created by Cornell University's National Science Foundation (NSF)-funded Nanobiotechnology Center (NBTC) in partnership with the Sciencenter, Ithaca's hands-on science museum, and Painted Universe, a local design firm.
