JSU-UCSB PREM’s Nano Day Activity in Science Museum: Impact on the Community

JSU-UCSB PREM Participants presented Nanoscience exhibition at the Capital Science Museum at Jackson, MS. During the exhibition, several demos were used to demonstrate and engage the audience on the beauty of Nanoscience.. The overall goal of the event was to expose and prepare community students to consider various Nanobased science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) careers. We have displayed 15 materials science projects and kid’s activities attracted over 400 kids. The program began at 9 am with exhibition on Nanoscale Science and Engineering. We presented a series of hands-on nano exhibits in the Museum lobby.
