Nano Exploration

The nanoexploration exhibit is all about the science of the small, and includes hands-on activities, as well as books and reading boards. Through a series of engaging, hands-on stations and activities, visitors are able to build a giant carbon nanotube; use their “spy skills” to find examples of nano products and phenomena as part of several interactive challenges; build a stable nano future on a tippy table; spin disks to compare the effects of static electricity and gravity; and sit back and comfortably learn more about nanotechnology from books and reading boards.

The Nano exhibit was created by the Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network (NISE Network) with support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), nanoengineering, and is sponsored by the College of NanoScale Science and Engineering (SUNY Poly)
