Nano & Society is a partnership of the Center for Nanotechnology in Society at Arizona State University and the Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network, both funded by the National Science Foundation.

The project engages broad public audiences in learning about the social dimensions of nanotechnology. Nano & Society has resulted in a 400 square foot interactive exhibition, Nano, on display at museums across the country; a set of NanoDays programming materials that engage audiences in conversations about science, technology, and society; and a series of four training workshops for museum staff. Together, these efforts will reach 11 million people in 2015.

We will display elements of an interactive exhibit component from the Nano exhibition, share hands-on activities from the NanoDays kits, and report research and evaluation results related to public learning of STS ideas. Nano & Society materials are open-source and can be accessed freely at nisenet.org.
