BU Students Simplify Science
4/7/2013 (Updated 10:57:34 PM)Binghamton University students hope to inspire the areas younger residents to become scientists.
As part of NanoDays-- a week dedicated to education programs about nano science -- BU students organized several events to introduce kids to science at the molecular level. On Sunday, they let shoppers at the Oakdale Mall try experiments that demonstrated how molecules interact with each other. They showed kids how scientists make the substance that helps cleans up large scale spills and even how companies makes babies diapers absorbent.
"It actually can be reduced to something very simple. Even a concept as complicated as nano technology can be simple if you just let them get their hands on it, it can really get them interested in science and science is where we get new things," said Andrew McClary, student at Binghamton University.
Sunday marked the end of NanoDays week, the largest public outreach effort in nanoscale science informal education.
