National Nanotechnology Day is an annual event featuring community-led events and activities on or around October 9 to help raise awareness of nanotechnology, how it is currently used in products that enrich our daily lives, and the challenges and opportunities it holds for the future. This date, 10/9, pays homage to the nanometer scale, 10–9 meters.
This year, National Nanotechnology Day is going virtual! Whether at home or outside, let’s explore ways to highlight advances in nanotechnology and how it is impacting our everyday lives.
Here are a few ideas you could try:
