The Auburn University Council of Engineering Graduate Students is set to host NanoDays 2016 on Wednesday, April 6. The annual event will take place at the Agricultural Heritage Park Pavilion and will be open to the community from 5-7:30 p.m.

NanoDays is a nationwide celebration of educational programs about nanoscale science. The event is designed to engage students from 2nd-10th grade in experiments that introduce basic concepts of nanoscience, engineering and technology. Hands-on activities will give participants the opportunity to discover how computer hard drives work, imagine how nanotechnology can change the way we eat, explore the forces of static electricity and more.

Each year, the event takes place in more than 250 locations including science museums, universities and research centers and is organized by participants in the Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network.

There is no cost to participate in the NanoDays’ activities, but registration is required prior to the event. To register visit the website.
