Description

Zoom Into Nano
Zoom Into Nano October 7, 2017 - January 7, 2018 Advances in nanotechnology are likely to change the way we design and fabricate almost everything – from faster computers, to stain repellent clothes, to new medicines to treat diseases, and technologies that are beyond our imagination. ZOOM INTO NANO presents a variety of large-scale, immersive experiences in the world of nanotechnology. Zoom into tiny structures and devices to see the amazing beauty of natural and manmade objects at very high magnification. Immerse yourself in models of atoms and molecules that are enlarged to 100 million times their actual size. Check out the full body interactive, where you use your hands to grab and pull apart the ends of a virtual RNA molecule. When you let go, the molecule folds back up into its natural shape. Try dissolving a virtual salt crystal by using your body’s movement to generate heat. Molecules are too small to see, but not too small to smell! Use your senses on a nano journey from small (sand), to smaller (dust), to nano (smell). Experience the constant motion of atoms and molecules in the “Atom Transporter.” Arrange individual atoms into a pattern while they’re moving. Are you up for the challenge? Explore the shapes and structures of things in our world--at the nanoscale! ZOOM INTO NANO was developed by Sciencenter of Ithaca, NY, through a partnership with Cornell University, with funding from the National Science Foundation.
