You probably know that "nano" means small, but we're talking really, really small. And it's not just something going on in a lab somewhere, nanotechnology is already being used in all sorts of products we use every day.
At Amazing Nano Worlds!, the Saint Louis Science Center’s summer exhibition, a world that is usually too small to see will get bigger, easier to understand and much more fun! Come explore interactive exhibits that will give you a closer look at how scientists are using nanotechnology to develop new tools and materials that will affect our lives.
Nanotechnology is the manipulation of matter on the atomic and molecular scale, to small to be visible by the naked human eye. Visitors to the exhibit can explore the world of nanotechnology by becoming part of it, by being immersed in molecules enlarged 100 million times their actual size. Children can also plunge into the “Giant Blood Drop” in search of ‘white blood cells’ hidden among thousands of ‘red blood cells’.
Nanoscale objects are very small, and often behave differently than larger things do. Some nanoscale objects are better at conducting electricity or heat, some are stronger, some have different magnetic properties, and some change color as their size changes. At the nanoscale, aluminum is explosive, silver kills germs, and water is sticky.
