Join the Institute for NanoBioTechnology in celebrating National Nanotechnology Day. We’ll have nano-focused bingo, nano building blocks, molding clay, snack-sized treats, and more. Come socialize with other INBT community members.

National Nanotechnology Day is an annual event featuring community-led events and activities on or around October 9 to help raise awareness of nanotechnology, its use in products that enrich our daily lives, and the challenges and opportunities for the future. This date, 10/9, pays homage to the nanometer scale, 10 –9 meters. Learn more about the National Nanotechnology Initiative’s Nanotechnology Day.

The theme for this year’s National Nanotechnology Day is “Enabling the Nanotechnology Revolution.” This phrase is inspired by the vision statement for the NNI which is to enable “a future in which the ability to understand and control matter at the nanoscale leads to ongoing revolutions in technology and industry that benefit society.” This year we are celebrating nanotechnology’s achievements over the past 20 years, as well as looking forward to how the NNI can continue to best support critical and emerging technologies of the future.
