National Nanotechnology Day

October 9, 2021

National Nanotechnology Day is an annual celebration featuring a series of community-led events and activities on or around October 9 to help raise awareness of nanotechnology, how it is currently used in products that enrich our daily lives, and the challenges and opportunities it holds for the future. This date, 10/9, pays homage to the nanometer scale, 10–9 meters.

Planning for various events and activities is underway at schools, universities, and various organizations around the country. Whether at home or outside, there are so many ways to explore advances in nanotechnology and how it is impacting our everyday lives!

MNT-EC is supporting National Nanotechnology Day with the flowing activities:

  1. Listen to one or more of the MNT-EC Talking Technicians Podcasts (Link to podcast page)
  2. In honor of National Nanotechnology Day, October 9th, the National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure (NNCI) is hosting the Plenty of Beauty at the Bottom image contest. Referencing Richard Feynman’s 1959 lecture, There’s Plenty of Room at the Bottom, this image contest celebrates the beauty of the micro and nanoscale. Vote for your favorite nano image in the NNCI Image Contest.

You can also check out other activities or find one to do at home by going to the Nano.gov website at National Nanotechnology Day | National Nanotechnology Initiative
