Interactive exhibit explores everyday uses of nanotechnology

Abstract:
A fascinating exploration into nanotechnology was an extra treat for visitors to Danville Science Center on Saturday as the center celebrated Nano Days.

A series of displays and interactive experiments showed visitors what scientists working in nanotechnology are doing to bring the tiny science into everyday products.

"We want to show people what nano is about," Bob Lenk, president of Luna nanoWorks, of Danville, said. "It's a unit of length, and a nano is a very tiny unit."

Nano Days kicked off Friday at the Institute for Advanced Learning & Research with a lecture on nanotechnology for the public and special training for area teachers.
