The activities will be targeted toward elementary school-age children, but can be educational for those of all ages. Children will be able to learn about nanoscale science through projects that explore how nanotechnology is used and applied in everyday life.

The event is being organized by the Department of Mechanical Engineering. The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering will also be at the event with an activity on photovoltaics.

The event is part of radio station 100.3 The Peak’s Free Summer Roadshows promotion in which the morning crew broadcasts live from family-oriented educational and entertaining locations around the city.
