Learn. Explore. Play

Join Princeton University's scientists and engineers to learn more about the exciting new research currently going on in materials science. Visit the many table top activities and demonstrations, engage the scientists and engineers, ask plenty of questions (either in Spanish or English!), and have fun with your entire family.

What is Materials Science and Nanoscience?

Materials science is the study of almost everything around you, what they're made of, how they work, and what you can do with them. Nanoscience is the study of atoms, molecules, and objects whose size is on the nanometer scale (1 - 100 nm). Nanotechnology deals with particles only a few nanometers across, the size of individual molecules and atoms.

Join us and meet the scientists who can control matter, one atom at a time!
