NANODAYS 2013 - at the Highland Road Park Observatory, Saturday, March 30, 2013 - 2:00-6:00 PM, AND at the Louisiana Arts & Science Museum, Saturday April 6, 2013 - 10:00 AM-3:00 PM. Learn about nanoscale science and technology during a nationwide festival celebrating the science of ultra small matter.
NANODAYS, will feature several hands-on activities for children of all ages. On Saturday, March 30, at 4:00 p.m. in the Highland Road Park Observatory, Dr. Richard Kurtz, Physics Department, LSU, will present Nanotechnology for improved energy generation, storage and transmission. On Saturday, April 6th, at 12:00 p.m. in the LASM, Dr. John DiTusa, Physics Department, LSU, will present Nanomagnets as a path to new computers. Dr. Juana Moreno will display a Scanning Tunneling Microscope that measures the surface of objects at the atomic level several times during the day.
Faculty, students and staff from: the LSU Center for Computation and Technology; the Department of Physics & Astronomy; the Department of Chemistry; the Society of Physics Students; and the National Science Foundation-funded Louisiana Alliance for Simulation-Guided Materials Applications (LA-SiGMA) are volunteering their time to make these events a success.
NANODAYS, organized by the Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network (NISE Net.), takes place nationally March 30-April 7, 2013, at more than 200 science museums, research centers and universities across the country. For more information please visit LSU Nanosciene & Nanotechnology website or contact Dr. Juana Moreno at firstname.lastname@example.org. Free admission at the LASM for students with an ID or report card. The event at the Observatory is free for all. Come be part of NanoDays!
