Explore Science at the Nanoscale on Feb. 22

Warning: Information you find on this page may be outdated or incorrect.

Join volunteers from the Research Triangle Nanotechnology Network to make thin films, try on a clean room suit, design a photo mask, and more on Saturday, February 22, in the auditorium at Pack Library.

Visitors will get a crash course on nanotechnology using a portable scanning electron microscope (SEM) and light microscopes to examine bugs, flowers, and other materials up close. Hands-on activities for all ages, children through adult, will help visitors relate to nanoscale phenomena and get an idea of techniques used to make things on this size scale.

This free program will take place in the auditorium at Pack Library on Feb. 22 from 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm, and there will be multiple activity tables for all learning levels from children to adults.


Everyone of all ages is welcome to participate. No ticket required, walk in and come when you can!

Pack Library is located at 67 Haywood Street in downtown Asheville. Visit buncombecounty.org/Governing/Depts/Library/branch-locations/pack-memorial.aspx for additional information.
