NanoDays Digital Kit

The NISE Network is no longer creating and distributing new NanoDays kits; the last kit we created was in 2015. We encourage you to hold NanoDays events and use NanoDays materials year-round. You can download digital kit materials from 2009-2015 in the NanoDays Archive.

NanoDays has grown into a nationwide festival engaging the public in nanoscale science, engineering, and technology – with events taking place at over 250 science museums, research centers, and universities across the country from Puerto Rico to Hawaii. We hope you continue to hold NanoDays events and to use NanoDays materials year-round in ways that enhances your educational programming, meets your institution’s needs, and above all, engages your visitors in fun, hands-on science for years to come.
