The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) and the Children’s Museum of Science and Technology (CMOST) are bringing NanoDays to the Main Library this Wednesday, April 3, from 11 am until 1 pm in the Children’s Room on the second floor.
Children and their families will learn about fuel cells, solar energy, and photovoltaic panels. Participants will have the opportunity to play with model fuel-cell cars and experiment with working photovoltaic panels, which will power small items such as calculators, fans, and radios. The NanoDays program is free and open to the public.
NanoDays is a nationwide festival of educational programs about nanoscale science and engineering and its potential impact on the future. The program engages people of all ages in learning about this emerging field of science, which holds the promise of developing revolutionary materials and technologies. In the Capital Region, NanoDays are taking place from April 1 through April 6 at public libraries and other organizations.
