NORTH GREENBUSH — The University at Albany's College of Nanoscale
Science and Engineering helped bring a national nanotechnology exhibit
to the Children's Museum of Science and Technology in North Greenbush.
The exhibit, called Nano, will open Saturday at the museum as part of its grand re-opening.
is materials and devices created at the molecular level used in a range
of products from medicine to computer chips.
The Nano exhibit
includes hands-on stations and activities. Participants can try building
a carbon nanotube, a normally invisible cylinder made of carbon
molecules that has unusual strength, making it ideal for things like
golf clubs and car parts.
