Big World Of Small Science

KSAL StaffMarch 30, 2014

Kansas Wesleyan University introduced Salina to the big world of small science on Sunday. The school celebrated “NanoDays” at the Central Mall.

Students and faculty from the KWU science department hosted hands-on exhibits that allowed visitors to imagine, discover, and explore a world that is too small to see.

Activities included things like demonstrating how to make an object disappear, and demonstrating how an object can be destroyed then reshaped back into its original form.

NanoDays, a nationwide celebration of “small scale science” is organized by the Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network. It includes a variety of educational programs about Nano science and engineering. This community-based national 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.

Kansas Wesleyan recently received a permanent Nano science kit through the Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network. The school will eventually use the kit as a “science on wheels” to travel to various schools, camps, and groups to help generate excitement about science.
