2019 NanoDays

Post by Christopher K. » December 14th, 2018, 4:00 pm

On Saturday 30 March, Dr. Juana Moreno and her students return for a celebration of nanotechnology and its applications. This event begins at 2pm and will have activities from adults and children alike.

At 2pm, Professor Mette Gaarde will present the lecture "Small Things Move Faster (Using Ultrashort Laser Pulses to Make Movies of Electrons)". From 3pm to 7pm a variety of nanotechnology demonstrations and experiments, many constructed with a child's inquisitive nature in mind. Solar viewing will take place from 3pm to 5pm.

At 7pm, the NanoDays event segues into Evening Sky Viewing Plus. Neither event will have an admission fee.

Mario Lozanov's City Gelato cart will be at HRPO for NanoDays! This is always good news. I was at the BRAS booth during Rockin' at the Swamp (at the Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center) this past Saturday, and bought a mint gelato. It was very good.

Each serving of gelato will be four to seven dollars, depending on size.
