The DIY Nano HD app allows families to experience and learn about nanoscale science, engineering, and technology at home or on the go!
The app provides free, easy to use, hands-on activities at your fingertips. Each activity includes materials lists, step-by-step instructions, and detailed explanations. The activity materials are widely available and inexpensive, and you probably have many of them in your own home!
Our app includes links to family friendly videos and helps you browse the whatisnano.org website for more information, activities, and videos.
An iPhone version is available, too!
The DIY Nano app was a collaboration of:
Lawrence Hall of Science
Emily Maletz Graphic Design
NISE Net, a national collaboration of science museums.
Funded by the National Science Foundation.

Really great app!
It's simple, and the information could be contained in a book. However, it's one of those apps that reminds me why I bought the iPad in the first place. It connects video, an online site, and science projects you can do at home or in the classroom, and it fits in my purse, along with my library of books, iTunes U classes, textbooks, cookbooks, and a toolbox of timers, tools, and note-taking apps that help me all day. It's really well done, not heavy, it works on any iOS tablet or phone, and it's not overly animated, or "cute." This makes nanotechnology easily accessible to a parent, a child, or a teacher. I LOVE it!
The best science show ever!
It was just so good! I hope you add more things!
You need to get this app! It's so insightful and as a bio student, very helpful and enjoying.
