There’s more to life than meets the eye. A lot more.
Our visible world is made up of a galaxy of microbes and molecules – so small it escapes our everyday notice. But some people have figured out ways to manipulate these smaller-than-microscopic structures for our advantage, making stain-resistant clothes, computer chips, and nanobots that can repair individual cells.
Now, you can see what they see.
Science World’s latest exhibition, Zoom Into Nano, is all about the science of the super small. Immerse yourself in the symmetry of the atoms and molecules that make up our physical world. Appreciate the beauty of nature at the nano level. Admire the intricacy of man-made structures up close, and learn about how we’re using these to our advantage.
Nanotechnology is already a huge part of our culture, and it’s only going to become more important. So although this interactive exhibit may be perfect for kids, don’t discount it as all child’s play – you’re guaranteed to learn something new about how the nano-world affects you, no matter your age.
Zoom Into Nano is only at Science World for a short time and is a must see for all ages – so be sure to visit before the nano-verse disappears again.
When: Until January 2. Science World is open Tuesday to Friday 10 am to 5 pm along with Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays from 10 am to 6 pm.
Where: 1455 Quebec Street, Science World
