Let's Get Small!

I just wanted to post a reminder about the Born to Do Science schedule, plus a bit of news.

There is no program this month due to Spring Break.

Our next program is "What Is the Shape of the Molecule?" on April 15, with Dr. Christina Bourne. We'll be talking about x-ray crystallography. If you are one of the people who wrote "Chemistry" on your feedback form, make extra sure to be there. This topic involves proteins and lots of organic chemistry.

Here's the bit of news -

The library is presenting an extra science program in conjunction with the Oklahoma Wondertorium between now and then.

A display on nanotechnology will go up in the North Lobby case the first couple of days in April and will remain through the end of the month. There will be a program for hands-on experiences on Saturday April 10th, with several stations for demonstrations. This will be a come and go thing for about three hours.

Mark your calendar now, and be sure to catch the nanotechnology display and/or program, not only because it's really cool, but also because on the 15th, we'll be talking about things that happen in the natural world on the nano scale. This will help you start to think small!

See you soon! Enjoy!
