Nanodays 2008, From The Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network.

Nanodays 2008, the inaugural year in underway now and giving away very valuable information. (The Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network (NISE Net) is a national community of researchers and informal science educators dedicated to fostering public awareness, engagement, and understanding of nanoscale science, engineering, and technology.)
NanoDays was created to provide a time and way to get community-based educational outreach efforts focused on nanoscale science, technology and engineering. Partners participating in NanoDays create outreach events unique to their local communities and then provide feedback to the Network on their NanoDays experience. Initially expected to be a small rollout, NanoDays kits have now been distributed to 100 institutions across the country. The kits include a planning guide, marketing materials, background information and the materials necessary to do six different nano-based programs.

And interest continues to grow! While the physical kits have been distributed, partners that would also like to participate in NanoDays are invited to download all or some of the digital version of the NanoDays kit.
