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, 620 S. Donahue Dr., Auburn, and will be open to the community from 5-7 p.m. Admission is free.

NanoDays is a nationwide celebration of scientific educational programs at the nanoscale level. The event is designed to engage students from second 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.

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

Registration is required prior to the event.
