December: Try these activities activities related to SEE's exhibitNano: Imagine and Discover a world you can't see

This December explore Nano science on the following dates: 6, 7, 13, 14, 20 & 21

Did you know gold is actually red or pink at the nanoscale? It's true and the properties of many other materials change as things get smaller too. A nano meter is one-billionth of a meter. That is very small! Drop in and try our activities to see how things work at the nano scale-things that are too small to see!
