Nano: Small Science, Big Fun!

Nano: Small Science, Big Fun!
June 2014

Explore the science of the very, very small! The exhibition Nano: Small Science, Big Fun at the WonderLab Museum in Bloomington offers exciting experiences that bring to life the basic concepts, technology, and applications of nanoscience. WonderLab is the first host site in Indiana for the national Nano Mini Exhibition. The multisensory exhibition at WonderLab also includes unique experiences, such as Smells Like Nano, an exploration of how your nose detects and identifies the shape of nano-sized scent molecules. A Nano Art exhibition will be on display as well.

Nanoscience is an exciting interdisciplinary field that focuses on matter at the nano-size scale, which is just one billionth of a meter! Scientists believe that nanotechnology has the potential to solve many of the world's pressing problems, from providing innovative medical treatments for disease to helping meet the world's future energy needs.

Nano: Small Science, Big Fun is at WonderLab from June 3 through September 7. The exhibition is made possible by the Nanoscale Informal Science Education Foundation Network (NISE Network) with funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Duke Energy Foundation, the Ray and Marcie Tichenor Endowment Fund, the American Chemical Society, CFC Properties, Norma Olmer, and TRAVELiN.
