Nanodays logoJoin us for a celebration of the small!

NanoDays 2014 will be held on Wednesday, April 2, 2014

Strand Union Building, MSU

Come anytime between 5pm and 7pm. This event is free and open to the public. Activities for kids and adults!

Nanoscience, the study of extremely small particles, will be celebrated at Montana State University on Wednesday, April 2 as part of a nationwide week of public outreach. All events are free and will help kids and adults understand nanoscience in a fun and easy-to-understand format.

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 and many other applications.

At MSU, researchers are using nanoscience to develop targeted vaccines, magnetic materials for electronics, and catalysts for producing hydrogen. Nanoscience is an emerging field that blends chemistry, physics, engineering and other areas of science, and is one of the country's top research priorities.

Volunteers! Sign up online through SignUpGenius or contact Suzi Taylor with MSU Extended University: taylor@montana.edu or call (406) 994-6550

We need volunteers for the morning shift (9:45 - 11:45am) and evening shift (4:30pm to 7:30pm) Training will be provided.
