Nano Days at The Woodlands Children’s Museum

Dr. J Explores Nano Technology April 1

 

THE WOODLANDS, TX – March 16, 2015 – Come to The Woodlands Children’s Museum to explore the science of a world that’s too small to see.

 

 

The museum is partnering with Nanoscale Informal Science Education (NISE) Network, a national community of researchers and science educators dedicated to fostering public awareness, engagement, and understanding of nanoscale science, engineering, and technology, to celebrate NanoDays 2015.

 

 

Nano Days is a nationwide festival of educational programs about nanoscale science and engineering and its potential impact on the future. These events bring scientists together with museums and other informal education organizations to create unique learning experiences.

 

The event is scheduled from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 1 at The Woodlands Children’s Museum, 4775 W. Panther Creek Dr. Suite 280.

 

 

A number of fun activities are planned to peak young imaginations as they study about matter on the smallest possible scale of atoms and molecules.

 

Dr. J will lead children in demonstrations of different, unexpected properties of materials at the nanoscale – including sand that won’t get wet even under water, water that won’t spill from a teacup and colors that depend upon particle size.

 

Dr. J is the alias for science teacher Jeremy Lukk, who has been working at the museum since 2011, taking guests on a journey into the ooey-gooey, fizzy, explosive side of science.

 

 

“I’ve always liked science,” he said. “And having the opportunity to present science to children in a cool and magical presentation is what I really like.”

 

 

Angela Colton, executive director of the museum, encourages children of all ages to come learn about nano-science.

 

 

“This is a fascinating subject, one that will captivate the minds of even our most curious guests,” she said. “Nano Days create a fun and educational way to explore science.”  

 

 

There is always plenty to do at The Woodlands Children’s Museum – from art and science to make-believe and magic. Located at 4775 W. Panther Creek Drive, Suite 280, in The Woodlands, 77381, the museum has a full calendar of exciting activities.
