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.

Nano Mini-Exhibition

Nano is an interactive exhibition that engages family audiences in nanoscale science, engineering, and technology. Hands-on exhibits present the basics of nanoscience and engineering, introduce some real world applications, and explore the societal and ethical implications of this new technology.

Alice In NanoLand

What is Nanoland, and what kinds of curious things will Alice find there?

Follow Alice down the rabbit hole into a land smaller than small, where crazy nano pants and cabbage abound!

Based on Lewis Carroll's beloved classic, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, this exciting romp explores the nano in nature and how phenomena at the very small scale affect our very big world.

Nano Buzz

Be a part of the buzz! See what’s new with nano.

NanoBuzz is a web-based kiosk featuring exhibit-ready access to current nanoscale science, technology and engineering and emerging research in the news. Discuss issues, ask questions, take a poll, meet scientists, and post your own stories, images, questions and comments.

NanoBuzz requires a web connection to automatically update the station with current nano news and to allow visitors to send emails from the kiosk.

Creating Nanomaterials

Creating Nanomaterials is an interactive, multimedia component of the Intro to Nanotechnology exhibit package that demonstrates how scientists are using the ability of molecules to self-assemble to create consumer goods with surprising properties. Visitors place and observe “molecules” on an air hockey table. When the air hockey table is activated, the “molecules” hover and assemble into patterns all by themselves—just like molecules in nanomaterials.

Liquid Armor

In this episode of O Wow Moments with Mr. O from the Children's Museum of Houston, learn how nanotechnology is being used to create new types of protective fabrics.
