NanoDays 2011 was held Saturday, June 18, from 12-4 PM at the Salt Lake City Main Library.
Nanodays 2011 was a great success. The event was hosted in the Salt Lake County Library, downtown, and presented by the Utah Museum of Natural History, Youth Teaching Youth group, the Leonardo Museum and the Nano Institute's Nanotechnology Training program students. The event included demonstrations on nano-tractor beams, nitinol memory wire, smart hydrogels, hydrophobic sand and atomic force microscopy.
Several hundred individuals attended the event, including Fox 13 News and a few professors from the University of Utah. Overall the event was a fun and creative way to reach out to the community and educate them on nanotechnology.
Next year's Nanodays event is being planned to be held in the new Rio Tinto Center being opened by the Natural History Museum of Utah, and is scheduled tentatively for March 31, 2012, from 12-4pm.
