Catherine McCarthy

The DIY NaParent's Choice Silver Honor Award noApp has just been awarded a Silver Honor award for mobile apps.

The Fall 2012 Parents' Choice review states, 

"DIY Nano is a lovely way to provide hands on, accessible science learning to your child."

"It offers engaging videos that set the stage for learning, and spells out simple experiments in a recipe card format. Each experiment comes with a summary, set of instructions, and explanation. It's a great summer time or after school guide for things parents and teachers can do for learning about the difficult field of nanoscience. "
