From the Bottom Up, One By One:

Combining Very Tiny Particles to Make Big

and Useful Things

 

By: Dr. Ishwar Puri

Saturday September 23, 2017

11:00am - 12:00pm

 

What if, all of a sudden, you shrunk by 1500 million times? You would be the size of a single water molecule? You would need to walk around proteins and climb over cells. Dr. Puri will help you discover how big things are created using very tiny nanoparticles. Just like building with tiny Legos, we are able to make new materials using these nanoparticles from the bottom up, one nanoparticle at a time. Discover how scientists use nanotechnology to speed up how new drugs are developed and to make sensors that can immediately tell us if water is clean.

Let's Talk Science will run a hands-on activity after the lecture, from noon - 1:00 pm.
