Informal Science Education

Informal science education takes place outside of the classroom.  Through public forums at libraries and museums, UC CEIN aims to communicate about nanotechnology and its risks and benefits.

Everyday experiences are ripe for science learning, and we are passionate about helping people understand the science (and nanoscience) in their everyday lives.  Click on the demo below to learn how nanoscience can help clean up an oil spill. This is now a NISE Network linked product!

Want to try this demo yourself?  For a list of supplies and a step-by-step guide, click here.

Here is a 15 minute introduction to nanotechnology & the environment.
