AUBURN, AL (WTVM) – Auburn University hosted 'NanoDays,' a nationwide celebration of scientific educational programs at the nanoscale level.
The event was hosted by the Auburn University Council of Engineering Graduate Students.
NanoDays is designed to engage students from second through 10th grade in experiments that introduce basic concepts of nanoscience, engineering, and technology.
"I think it's important for people to learn that science is in the world all around them. Sometimes people may know think you know I don't want to study science in school but sometimes they come to events like this and they see it could be kind of fun," said Virginia Davis with the Department of Chemical Engineering.
Each year, the event takes place in more than 250 locations across the country including science museums, universities, and research centers and is organized by participants in the Nanoscale Informal.
