Physics department hosts NanoDays 2012

March 9, 2012

The Department of Physics at Loyola University New Orleans presents NanoDays 2012, part of a nationwide festival of educational programs about nanoscale science and engineering, on Thursday, March 29 from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. in the St. Charles room of the Danna Student Center. The event is free and open to the public.

NanoDays, organized by the Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network, is a nationwide festival of educational programs that explore nanoscale science and its potential impact on the future. This community-based event is the largest public outreach effort in nanoscale informal science education and involves science museums, research centers and universities from Puerto Rico to Alaska.

NanoDays celebrations bring university researchers together with students to explore the miniscule world of atoms, molecules and nanoscale forces. The programs combine hands-on activities with presentations on current research to demonstrate the special and unexpected properties found at the nanoscale, examine tools used by nanoscientists, showcase nano materials with spectacular promise and invite discussion of technology and society.

NanoDays events are funded by the National Science Foundation. For more information, contact Patrick Garrity, Ph.D., at plgarrit@loyno.edu or 504-865-3644.
