2019 Festival Event:

Exploring the Nanoscale

Learn what makes the nanoscale special and how it’s led to improvements in everyday products. Join Georgia Tech scientists and engineers in hands-on activities exploring the nanoscale. What is nano about a lotus leaf and how do we use this effect? How can clear nail polish be colorful? What is a smart material? What do objects look like under a scanning electron microscope (SEM)? Bring a sample to scan (not wet, and less than an inch in diameter, please) with our tabletop SEM.
