Each kit will include fun, hands-on activities developed by the Children's Museum of Houston, the Lawrence Hall of Science and other members of the National Informal Science Education Network. Kits will also include supplies for student activities and background information for teachers. Kits can be used for any grade level, and no prior knowledge of nanoscience is required.
To apply for a free nano kit, teachers must fill out a short online application at http://eu.montana.edu/NanoDays/ by March 24. Preference will be given to schools that are 30 miles or more beyond Bozeman. Those selected will receive their kits in time for NanoDays week, March 28- April 2.
NanoDays is a national celebration of nanoscale science and engineering. At MSU, NanoDays is sponsored by MSU Extended University, Montana NSF EPSCoR and the Center for Bio-Inspired Nanomaterials.
