whatisnano.org website

The NISE Network has created a website for public audiences featuring links to videos, audio material, podcasts, games, DIY activities, and NanoDays information for the public. The site also features information about the Nano mini-exhibition including audio description files in both English and Spanish. The Spanish version of the website includes links to Spanish language resources when available.

Nanomedicine Exhibition

In the Nanomedicine exhibition, four individual exhibit components highlight nanotechnology’s vast potential for diagnosing and treating disease, as well as its ability to help damaged tissue regrow. Test for thousands of diseases with a single nano-based chip, target tumor cells for treatment with nanoparticles in a tabletop game, and regrow severed nerve endings on nanoscale scaffolding. These exhibits were developed by the NISE Network; copies are located at the Museum of Science in Boston, OMSI in Oregon, and the Arkansas Discovery Network.

Nano mini-exhibition Audio Description

The audio description (AD) that accompanies the Nano exhibition was developed to increase access for visitors with low or no vision. It may also be able to support visitors with learning disabilities, and others for whom reading is challenging. The overall approach for this process is described as follows: Goals: • Make the experience accessible for visitors with low vision, and for blind visitors with a sighted companion (following American Council for the Blind’s definition of an audio description as an assistive technology)

NanoView

The exhibition NANO VIEW was set up by the students of Leuven’s Academy of Art (SLAC) and showed the world of nanotechnology through the eyes of 800 youngsters. The works of arts were first shows in SLAC and later on at IMEC Netherlands and KHLeuven.

Small Science, Big Deal

Small Science, Big Deal was a full sized multi-gallery nanotechnology exhibition created by Science Museum of London that closed in 2005. It is aimed at families with children and visiting adults. The website contains all the original content from the exhibition and links to interactive games.

NanoZone

The NanoZone is both a website and a permanent exhibition at UC Berkeley's Lawrence Hall of Science. The exhibition introduces basic nanoscale and state-of-the-art nanotechnology science to an 8 to 14-year-old audience. Content focuses on the smallness of a nanometer, scientists as people, applications, and links between nanotechnology and nature.
