NanoDays 2015 physical kit award decisions have been made and 250 kits will be distributed to locations nationwide by early February. This year's kit includes 8 new hands-on activities and 3 returning favorites!
NanoDays 2015 will be held from March 28 through April 5, 2015. NanoDays is a week of community-based educational outreach events to raise public awareness of nanoscale science, technology and engineering throughout the United States. NanoDays kits are currently in production and will be ready for distribution in early 2015. We invite you to fill out an online application for a physical kit containing all of the materials and resources you need to start planning your community events; applications are due December 1, 2014.
Like many communities around the country Rochester, New York goes all out celebrating NanoDays. Visitors to the Rochester Museum & Science Center (RMSC) joined museum staff and volunteers as well as staff and students from the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) and University of Rochester for a fun filled weekend at the end of March, but as Joelle Adolfi, Manager of Youth and Family Programs, states, nano related programing doesn’t end there. There’s so much more!
We hope you’re getting excited for NanoDays!
We wanted to let you know about some additional NanoDays resources you may find useful:
In 2014, our operation became so large that we had to take kit fabrication out of both the Science Museum of Minnesota’s shop and warehouse. We rented another warehouse offsite, where kit assembly consumed the space for over a month. Some days you couldn’t even walk through the space there was some much going on!
Here we show you a high-speed version of our labor – five weeks wrapped up in two-minutes and twenty-two seconds!!!
We are always excited to see photos of your NanoDays 2014 events - in particular we love to get photos of your NanoDays team.
1. Take some photos of your team at your NanoDays event.
Many thanks to all NISE Network partners who participated in local NanoDays events nationwide!

Multimeter replacement for Ammeter in the Exploring Properties—Electric Squeeze activity in NanoDays 2014 kits
Due to an ordering mix-up with one of our suppliers, NISE Network partners receiving NanoDays 2014 physical kits may have received the wrong ammeter. The ammeter in question is part of the Exploring Properties—Electric Squeeze activity. Some of the NanoDays kits erroneously contained a 50 amp (A) ammeter, when they all should have contained a 50 microamp (µA) ammeter.
