Nano Passports and NanoDays updates

Vrylena Olney

NanoDays 2008 at the Museum of Science, Boston At last year's NanoDays, staff at the Chabot Space & Science Center created NanoDays passports for visitors. Lisa Hoover, the Galaxy Explorers Program Manager at Chabot, explained that they create passports for most of their special events to give visitors a goal, guide visitors through thematic stations, and provide follow-up content or home activities. She graciously shared the passport with us, you can download it at the bottom of this post. Did you do something at last year's NanoDays that was particularly successful that you'd like to share? Let me know! -- And don't forget about this year's NanoDays. We've revised the kit, adding several new activities and resources and revising instruction sheets and manuals for the activities. You can apply for a physical kit online, applications are due by December 15th. The digital kits are available to anyone who registers on, and are designed particularly for international locations, K-12 educators, and other educational organizations. Those will be available for free download starting on January 15, 2010. You can find much more information about NanoDays 2010 at
