I am an artist and science educator. I work at the Bradbury Science Museum in Los Alamos, NM, where we have three educators and a sometimes overwhelming STEM education effort.

We celebrated NanoDays for the first time in the spring of 2008, and have stretched many of the activities into a display with visitor participation in our family-friendly Techlab, and also through the summer with daily demonstrations on the museum floor.

Los Alamos National Laboratory performs a great deal of research in the micro, nano, and sub-nano scales, and the support we have received from the NISE Network has helped us bring some of this work to the attention of our patrons.

During the fall of 2009 we are adding a nano component to our program about the MicroWorld.
