What Are YOU Doing for National Nanotechnology Day?


 

National Nanotechnology Day is an annual event featuring a series of community-led events and activities on or around October 9th 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.

Now in its second year, planning for various events and activities is underway at schools, labs, and organizations around the country! In addition, the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office is promoting the following activities:

  • 100 Billion Nanometer Dash: a challenge to run #100BillionNanometers  (equal to 100 meters) and upload pictures or a video.   
  • EnvisioNano: the next winner of the NNI’s nanotechnology image contest will be announced on National Nano Day. Now accepting submissions!
  • Nano Filmthe next winner of the NNI’s nanotechnology video contest will be announced on National Nano Day. Now accepting submissions!
  • Nanotechnology Podcasts: NNCO is producing a series of 3-5 minute podcasts that share stories from the NNI to be launched on National Nano Day. (Link coming soon!)
