Cambridge Science Festival at MIT.nano

Explore MIT’s astonishing brand new nano-research facility through demonstrations and hands-on activities. Learn how the power of nano will help build a better world.

How big is a smell? What size is a color? From what we see to how we smell, from how insect wings shed water to how plants turn sunlight into energy, nature operates with molecules measured in nanometers.

Just how small is that? A nanometer is a billionth of a meter!

Visit MIT’s new nano-research facility to meet people who explore this fantastically small world. Experience demonstrations of groundbreaking research and innovative technologies, take part in hands-on activities for the whole family—and learn how the power of nano will help build a better world.
