NanoBCA Celebrates National Nanotechnology Day! Friday October 9th

Posted on October 8th, 2020 in Uncategorized | No Comments »

National Nanotechnology Day is Friday, October 9th!
What are you doing for #NationalNanotechnologyDay?

National Nanotechnology Day is an annual celebration featuring a series of community-led events and activities on or around October 9 to help raise awareness of nanotechnology, how it is currently used in products that enrich our daily lives, and the challenges and opportunities it holds for the future. This date, 10/9, pays homage to the nanometer scale, 10-9 meters.

This year, National Nanotechnology Day is going virtual! Whether at home or outside, let’s explore ways to highlight advances in nanotechnology and how it is impacting our everyday lives.

Planning for various events and activities is underway at schools, universities, and various organizations around the country! The National Nanotechnology Coordination Office is promoting the 100 Billion Nanometer Dash: Run #100BillionNanometers take a video or picture and post it on social media with #NationalNanoDay!

Here are a few other ideas you could try:

·  Sizing Up Nano: How do you explain what a nanometer is? Or what a nanoparticle or a nanodevice look like? We welcome your thoughts! Send us your explanations, pictures, and videos to NND@nnco.nano.gov, or send a Tweet by using #NationalNanoDay!

·  Create an image, video, illustration, or infographic about nanotechnology: what it is, why it is important, and examples of nanotechnology applications.

·  Host image, video, or illustration contests related to nanotechnology.

·  Host a virtual informal discussion on nanotechnology with a scientist from local college or university.

Visit https://www.nano.gov/nationalnanotechnologyday for more information, or email us at NND@nnco.nano.gov to let us know what activities you are planning for National Nanotechnology Day!
