The NanoDays kit application closed December 10th. Regional Hub leaders will be notifying applicants whether or not they will received a kit. The good news is that we had more applicants than ever. The bad news, is that it made choosing who to award the 200 kits to even more difficult. Thanks to all who applied. Even if you were not awarded a kit, you can still use the NanoDays 2011 digital kit materials - available for download January 15th, 2011.

NanoDays will be celebrating its fourth birthday this year, and the kit's gotten a bit of an update in honor of that birthday. 

In particular, this year's kit includes seven brand-new activities.  All the materials to run the activities are included in the physical kits, but you can also download the activity guides, graphics, signs, and more for each of these activities from our catalog online.
