Children and adults are learning about atoms and molecules and science at the nano-level.
Gannon University faculty and students are hosting Nano Days at the Experience Children’s Museum today and tomorrow. It’s part of a national festival of educational programs. The event introduces people to the world of nanoscale science and engineering with demonstrations and hands-on activities.
Chair of the Chemistry Department of Gannon University, Dr. Lisa Nogaj, says, “Anything you can do with kids to get them exposed to science is so important. Having that hands-on experience and getting to explore your world and really understanding how science plays into bettering our lives and improving technology in our everyday experiences is something that I think is just really exciting and our students and faculty are really dedicated to.”
The Nano Days celebration will be held again tomorrow from 2-5pm.
