The DIY Nano 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 iPad 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.

Ratings and Reviews
Highly recommend this app
Not only teachers, but parents, grandparents, after school & any child day-care providers will find this app useful.
You might find yourself gaining new knowledge, or clarity of understanding as this has been my own experience.
Make MORE Like This!
The perfect answer to mindless gaming is an app like this, which teaches children valuable science in an engaging way. My 9 yo daughter is very interested in science and engineering and her autistic 7 yo brother is also getting so much from this app. Please make MORE on new topics like this!!!
