It was a win-win!

The carbon nanotube at Nanoday.Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology's (WIN’s) scientific outreach program was in full swing at the children’s museum. Parents and kids of all ages stomped through "Magic NanoMud", marvelled at ferro fluid art and built a 20 foot carbon nanotube out of balloons during “Nanoday” at the Museum.

It was a joint effort between WIN and the University of Guelph,

said WIN Managing Director, Alain Francq. Undergraduate nanotechnology students were able to engage the imagination of the kids, and peak the interest of the parents. It was “WIN-WIN”.

Kids and volunteers alike participated in building the 20-foot carbon nanotube.
