ZOOM INTO NANO
Kirby Science Discovery Center
ZOOM INTO NANO presents a variety of large-scale, immersive experiences in the world of nanotechnology. Zoom into tiny structures and devices to see the amazing beauty of natural and manmade objects at very high magnification. Immerse yourself in models of atoms and molecules that are enlarged to 100 million times their actual size. Try dissolving a virtual salt crystal by using your body’s movement to generate heat. Molecules are too small to see, but not too small to smell! Use your senses on a nano journey from small (sand), to smaller (dust), to nano (smell). Experience the constant motion of atoms and molecules in the “Atom Transporter.” Explore the shapes and structures of things in our world--at the nanoscale!
