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.
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
"Nanotechnology: What's the Big Deal?" is a broad overview of the unique challenges and opportunities presented by nanoscale science, and dives into the super tiny scale of nanotechnology.
The Intro to Nanotechnology exhibition introduces the basics of nanoscience through four interactive exhibit components. 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.
What is Nanomedicine? This is the introductory component for the Nanomedicine exhibit package; but the video on it's own is also an informative stand-alone media piece for other uses. The structure includes a text panel and a narrated-and-captioned 2.5 minute video which plays on demand in either English or Spanish on a 32-inch LCD screen. The video's colorful animation and researcher commentary complements the accompanying text panel to provide a brief overview of some of the basic ideas and goals of nanomedicine.
