Nanotechnology for kids!
It’s a Nano World uses interactive exhibits to introduce young children to nanotechnology. Cornell scientists and the Sciencenter hands-on museum needed to know could kids ages 5-8 understand highly abstract nano concepts? To find out Edu did activity-based focus groups in schools and museums. The result – designers simplified concepts into a few big ideas that children understood.
When It’s a Nano World opened at Disney’s EPCOT® Edu conducted a summative study.
