The Auburn University Council of Engineering Graduate Students is hosting NanoDays 2017 on Wednesday, March 29. The annual event will take place at the Agricultural Heritage Park Pavilion on 620 S. Donahue Drive, Auburn and will be open to the community from 5-7 p.m. Admission to the event is free.

Organized by participants in the Nanoscale Informational Science Education Network, NanoDays is a nationwide celebration of scientific educational programs at the nanoscale level. Each year, the event takes place in more than 250 locations across the country including science museums, universities and research centers.

The event is designed to engage students from 2nd through 10th grade in experiments that introduce basic concepts of nanoscience, engineering and technology. Hands-on activities will allow participants to discover how computer hard drives work, imagine how nanotechnology can change the way we eat, explore the forces of static electricity and more.

Registration is available online and required prior to the event.
