NanoDays set March 31 with free family events

Bozeman, MT | Posted on March 23rd, 2009

All NanoDays events are free and will help kids and adults understand nanoscience in a fun and easy-to-understand format.

Nanoscience is an emerging field that blends chemistry, physics, engineering and other areas of science. Nanoscientists work with particles and devices between one and 100 nanometers in size (the head of a pin is 1,000,000 nanometers across). Through nanoscience, scientists have developed disease-fighting drugs, computer components, transparent sunscreen, ultra-strong sports equipment.

At MSU, researchers are using nanoscience to develop targeted vaccines, magnetic materials for electronics and catalysts for producing hydrogen.

The schedule for MSU NanoDays follows:
1 p.m. to 5 p.m.: Ongoing--Nano videos, demonstrations and interactive multimedia exhibits. Drop in anytime; teachers who wish to bring a class should schedule by calling 994-6550.

6 p.m.: "What's all this fuss about nanotechnology?" Presented by scientists from MSU's Center for Bio-Inspired Nanomaterials.

6 p.m. to 8 p.m.: Family activities and hands-on demonstrations, including build your own virus model, manipulate magnetic liquid and play with a hydrogen fuel cell model car.

Souvenirs and refreshments will be provided. Activities are appropriate for children approximately age 8 and up. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

All events take place at the Burns Technology Center's Studio 1080 multimedia center in the atrium of the EPS (Engineering and Physical Sciences) Building, just east of the Strand Union at MSU.

NanoDays is sponsored by MSU CBIN and MSU Extended University. For more information, visit eu.montana.edu/nanodays
