MANILA, Philippines – Explore the amazing world of really small stuff at The Mind Museum this July. How small is “nano”? What is nanotech? What are the benefits and risks of nanotech?
Café Scientifique presents Passport to Nanoworld on July 13 (Saturday), 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Canopy Plaza of The Mind Museum at J.Y. Campos Park, 3rd Avenue, Bonifacio Global City.
Nanotechnology relies on individually manipulating atoms and molecules. Atoms and molecules are so small, they are the size of nanometers (a nanometer is a billionth of a meter). That is a million times smaller than the average length of an ant! At this level, scientists and engineers are able to manipulate their properties for different applications such as in medicine, energy storage and electronic devices to name a few. However, like any technology, there are risks that come with these benefits.
With the help of Dr Zoraida Aguilar, this session of Café Scientifique aims to engage young minds in a conversation about the basics of nanotechnology and to increase public awareness regarding its impacts, benefits and risks.
Café Scientifique is a world-wide movement to bring science closer to the public through conversations. This is The Mind Museum’s 11th since 2008.
This event is free and open to the public. – Rappler.com
