In this episode of O Wow Moments with Mr. O from the Children's Museum of Houston, we take a look at the fusion of science and cooking - molecular gastronomy. Find out how to make your own ice cream topping that requires a scientist (namely, you) to create it and how it relates to nanotechnology!
The "Nano & Society" poster series provide an entry point for exploring the relationship between nanotechnology and society. They can be displayed on their own, used to spark an open-ended conversation, or paired with suggested activities.
This series of museum labels are designed for general use in your museum or institution to highlight existing connections to nanoscale science, engineering, or technology. NISE Net partners are already coming up with creative ways to use these labels to showcase nano. For example, you can make a scavenger hunt or special tour to encourage visitors to find all the connections! Additional templates (.doc and .indd) are also provided so that you can create your own signage and content.
NanoBuzz is a web-based kiosk featuring exhibit-ready access to current nanoscale science, technology and engineering and emerging research in the news. Website includes four online puzzle games: Help assemble the carbon nanotubes, Help filter the water, Try to find the nanoparticle, and Test your nanotech memory.
These colorful educational posters cover all four NanoDays key concepts. Use the posters to help decorate and define the space for your NanoDays event, call attention to specific activities or programs, and provide additional content to visitors.
A welcome letter (with materials list) and the planning and marketing guide included in the NanoDays physical kit to assist with planning and promoting your NanoDays event. Also includes a link to the Guide to Building Parnerships Between Museums and University-Based Research Centers and a document outlining Strategies for Engaging Bilingual Audiences in your NanoDays event
We've put together resources to help you promote your NanoDays event and other nano educational activities. A collection of NISE Net press photos can also be found in the Tools & Guides section of the catalog.
