2020 Festival Event:
This event was part of a previous year’s festival. Find upcoming events.
Investigating the Nanoscale
How do scientists and engineers make and see nanoscale objects? What does your hair or an insect’s eye look like under a scanning electron microscope (SEM)? Through hands-on demos, learn what makes the nanoscale different, how harnessing it has led to improvements in products you use every day, and about future applications you can only imagine. Take a cleanroom tour and bring a sample (not wet and not greater than an inch in diameter) to scan with our tabletop SEM. Come early for "Science of Star Wars" beginning at 10:00am.
This event meets in the Atrium.
Getting there: Marcus Nanotech is a 15-minute walk from either the Midtown or North Ave MARTA Station. Walk to Tech Square, then go west on Fifth Street/Ferst Drive. The Georgia Tech Trolley is free and runs every 35 minutes from 10 AM to 6:40 PM from campus to Midtown MARTA. If you drive, parking is available in Visitors Area 4 (State Street and Ferst Drive) and 5 (North Campus Parking Deck) on the Georgia Tech campus. See more info here.
