Look Inside the Nano World

Come operate a scanning electron microscope! The Nano World exhibit will take you on a journey into the World of the Very Small with just a few clicks of a mouse. Nanoscale science and technology make use of materials having dimensions or features approximately in the 1 to 100 nanometers range. That’s 1,000 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair! You will operate a scanning electron microscope via remote control and view features of objects at up to 100,000x magnification. You will also be able to speak with researchers about the solutions nanotechnology can offer society.

¡Lotería!

Loteria, sometimes known as Loteria Mexicana or even Mexican bingo is similar to bingo where numbers are drawn out of a drum or electronically, except this colorful version of the game uses cards and pictures instead of numbers. Much like a traditional game of bingo, you will have a sheet that depicts the characters on in a set of nine squares and as each character/card is called out you need to match these to what is on your sheet. Unlike bingo, there are lots more ways in which you can win!
