National Nanotechnology Day (NanoDay) is a time to celebrate nanoscale engineering, science, and technology, to recognize researchers advancing the field, to applaud innovators translating outcomes into valuable products and services, and to increase understanding for its potential to positively impact lives. Each year NIMET faculty, staff and students organize a series of stimulating, educational, fun, and social events that take place on NanoDay (October 9th: 10-9).


Topics of interest at prior NanoDay events include:

Nano-Agriculture Nano-Environmental Nano-Medicine
Nano-Biology Nano-Fluidics Nano-Particles
Nano-Chemistry Nano-Materials Nano-Photonics
Nano-Electronics Nano-Mechanics Nano-Education/Nano-Ethics
