Zoom Into Nano
November 1, 2017 - January 7, 2018
Advances in nanotechnology are likely to change the way we design and fabricate almost everything – from faster computers, to stain repellent clothes, to new medicines to treat diseases, and technologies that are beyond our imagination. ZOOM INTO NANO presents a variety of large-scale, immersive experiences in the world of nanotechnology. Zoom into tiny structures and devices to see the amazing beauty of natural and manmade objects at very high magnification. Immerse yourself in models of atoms and molecules that are enlarged to 100 million times their actual size. Check out the full body interactive, where you use your hands to grab and pull apart the ends of a virtual RNA molecule. When you let go, the molecule folds back up into its natural shape. Exhibit takes place at The Durham Museum. For more information, visit www.durhammuseum.org.
