Uva professors and students in the Department of Material Science and Engineering held their annual NanoDays event. It allowed scientists as well as families to experience nanotechnology.

Several experiments showed how changing materials on the smallest level could bring out a big outcome.

“Scientist like us, both here at UVa and in many other places, we try to figure out how to make stuff that small and how to see it once we've made it, try to measure it's properties and then try to use it for interesting things, whether it's medicine, structural material or an aircraft,” says Jerry Floro, associate professor of material sciences.

This is the fourth year that the event has been put on by the department.
