NanoDays events planned, hundreds of K-12 students expected

Apr 25, 2012

Hundreds of kindergarten through high school students are expected on the Purdue campus Thursday and Friday.

The nearly 2,000 students and teachers are coming for NanoDays at Discovery Park.

This year’s theme is The Biggest Event for the Smallest Science. Nanotechnology is the ability to measure, manipulate and manufacture objects between one and 100 nanometers in size – that’s a fraction of the diameter of a human hair.

The Birck Nanotechnology Center is organizing the event, with the goal of teaching students about the science, and get them interested in learning more. Hands-on activities and games are some of the features attendees can expect.

Events are 9am -3pm each day at Discovery Park and open to the public.
