NanoDays Cage Iamge

NanoDays celebrations bring university researchers together with science educators to create new and unique learning experiences for both children and adults to explore the miniscule world of atoms, molecules, and nanoscale forces. Our NanoDays events combine fun hands-on activities with presentations on current research.

The local community can experience many of these activities firsthand. Visitors will make their own nanobots from everyday materials! Other activities include educational videos and Dragonfly TV!

Come and Explore with us!
