Explore Science at the Nanoscale: STEM fun for All Ages


From Buncombe County Libraries:

Join volunteers from the Research Triangle Nanotechnology Network to make thin films, try on a clean room suit, design a photomask, and more! Visitors will get a crash course on nanotechnology using a portable scanning electron microscope (SEM) and light microscopes to examine bugs, flowers, and other materials up close. Hands-on activities for all ages, children through adult, will help visitors relate to nanoscale phenomena and get an idea of techniques used to make things on this size scale.

This free program will take place in the auditorium at Pack Library on Feb. 22 from noon-3 p.m., and there will be multiple activity tables for all learning levels from children to adults. Everyone of all ages is welcome to participate. No ticket required, walk in and come when you can
