Nano is Everywhere Wonder Challenge

Nano is Everywhere Wonder Challenge


Introducing the November Wonder Challenge – “Nano is Everywhere!”

“Nano” refers to one billionth (or 10-9). Materials exhibit unique features at this length scale. Because of this, the field of nanotechnology is emerging and impacting our daily lives.

The Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering (JSNN), a collaborative program of North Carolina A&T State University and UNC Greensboro, is taking over the November Wonder Challenge to celebrate the Science Olympiad National Tournament coming to NC State in May 2020.

Take the “Nano is Everywhere” Wonder Challenge by identifying materials that consist of nanoparticles in your midst. Examples include titanium dioxide that is found in sunscreen and paint. Some naturally occurring nanoparticles include viruses and milk. Find creative ways to identify materials that are on the nanoscale and describe them in a quick video, or share a selfie with your “nano” discovery.

How To Enter:

⭐From now until November 25, find something in your midst that consists of nanoparticles.

⭐Snap a photo or quick video of your “nano discovery” and upload it to social media.

⭐Tag #WonderChallenge or #NanoIsEverywhere and @JSNN2907.

The top five entries will win the “Nano Wonder Prizepack.”
