Thank You, NanoDays 2014 Volunteers!

The Sciencenter would like to thank the 104 enthusiastic volunteers who served the 860 guests who attended our free NanoDays event on March 22. The Sciencenter would like to extend its appreciation to Cornell University for collaborating with us through its research centers, student groups, and individual scientists.

NanoDays forms part of a nationwide festival of educational programs about nanoscale science and engineering. The national event is the largest public outreach effort in nanoscale informal science education and involves science museums, research centers, and universities from Puerto Rico to Alaska. Right here in Ithaca, the Sciencenter develops the primary set of educational activities used by hundreds of organizations every year. A big thank you to our visitors for helping us prototype these activities that will be used throughout the country at next year's event.

NanoDays Partners

A big thank you to the volunteers listed below and our NanoDays partners: Cornell Center for Materials Research, Cornell Institute for Biology Teachers, Cornell Laboratory for Accelerator-based Sciences and Education, and Cornell NanoScale Science and Technology Facility.
