Nano, a 400-square-foot interactive exhibition that encourages families to investigate nanoscale science, engineering and technology, is now on view at the Miami Science Museum. Nano is a collection of fun hands-on interactive exhibits that demonstrate what happens on an extremely small scale. The Museum is one of several institutions across the U.S. to be awarded a copy of the Nano exhibition from the Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network (NISE Net) through a competitive application process. Nano is presented in both English and Spanish. The Museum will host a Nano special event on Saturday, Aug. 18 to celebrate the opening of the exhibition, featuring additional Nano hands-on demonstrations and activities, as well as two brand-new, interactive Nano theater shows. Nano was created by the NISE Net with support from the National Science Foundation. Nanoâ€™s hands-on exhibits present the basics of nanoscience and engineering, introduce some real world applications, and explore the societal and ethical implications of this new technology. Features of the Nano exhibition include Where can you find nano?, What happens when things get smaller?, Whatâ€™s new about nano?, What does nano mean for us?, Static vs. Gravity and a reading area. Nano complements NanoDays events to take place at the Museum March 30-April 7, 2013 and other NISE Net educational experiences. Nano is now open and will be on display indefinitely. Exhibit and Nano special event free with Museum admission.
