Join us for a celebration of the small!
NanoDays 2014 will be held on Wednesday, April 2, 2014
Strand Union Building, MSU
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.
