Montana State University has announced that it will organize free NanoDays family science night at its Strand Union Ballrooms on April 11.
The event will be held between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. and it will highlight several aspects of nanotechnology. In a fun- based method, both children and adults will be exposed to nanoscience and its effects on society.
Nanotechnology is a promising area, which involves learning and controlling substances at atomic and molecular levels for discovering new medicines, non-conventional energy solutions, durable sports devices and several other products.
Attendees of the event can experience several demos and activities like handling magnetic fluid, receiving a nano tattoo, understanding about static electricity and playing with nanosand.
At the Montana State University, scientists use nanoscience to create specific vaccines, magnetic substances for electrical devices and catalysts for hydrogen production. Nanoscience combines several aspects of physics, chemistry, engineering and other fields of science. It is one among the major research priorities of the nation.
The event is funded by Montana NSF EPSCoR, MSU's Center for Bio-Inspired Nanomaterials, MSU Extended University and the Undergraduate Chemistry Society.
