Looking for Nano Structures in Nature—Example, Nano Structures Create Iridescence in Some Butterfly Wings—and Do Some Nano Science: Children 5+
Workshop Leader: Melanie Meade, South Fork Natural History Museum (SOFO) Education & Outreach Coordinator

Nano is short for nanoscience—the study of things at the nanoscale: 1 nanometer = 1 billionth of a meter. It is a way of explaining why the behavior of some materials (what we can see), is dependent on their nanostructure (what we can’t see). We can observe the natural iridescence of peacock feathers, butterfly wings, and soap bubbles and the corresponding biomimicry of holograms on currency, credit cards, in some e-screens, and in sunscreen. Find out more about what nano is by experimenting with butterfly wings and sunscreen. Make a UV- sensitive bead bracelet and a shimmering rainbow film to take home. Material fee $5
