UVA's Nanoscience Institute Opens Labs to Public

Posted: Updated:
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va (WVIR) -

The University of Virginia's Nanoscience Institute opened its labs to the public Saturday to share hands-on demonstrations as part of its annual Nano-Days program.

The event featured dozens of interactive exhibits, including a pool you can walk on and metal that's as bouncy as a trampoline. The student scientists easily found willing volunteers to try them out.

Gerry Floro, a material science professor at UVA, hopes Nano-Days will inspire others to wonder about science at its most minuscule level.
