Discover a miniscule world where materials have special properties and new technologies have spectacular promise! Don’t miss NanoDays – a nationwide festival of programs about nanoscale science and engineering – March 24 – April 1.

We are having our very own NanoDays events at the Academy’s Naturalist Center. Make your own nanomaterial using adhesive tape, investigate superthin materials used in solar cell technology, and change the color of a butterfly’s wings! Build a giant puzzle, play an “I Spy Nano” game, and much more.

To learn more about NanoDays and the amazing world of nanoscale science, visit What Is Nano? or see their great collection of K-12 educator resources.
