The Northwestern University-Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center sponsors a NanoDay at their campus. The mission of the NWU-NSEC is to foster a lifelong interest in science and technology by teaching people of all ages about the nanoworld. Many schools have come to Northwestern to participate in "NanoDay." It is a half-day of activities designed to spark student interest in nanoscience and technology. The students watch a variety of demonstrations led by professors. The students also participated in a hands-on activity: building model LEGO® atomic force microscopes (AFMs). At the end of the activities, each student received a take-home "Try This!" Nanokit developed by the University of Wisconsin-Madison. For more information contact: www.nsec.northwestern.edu
