National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network

Serving Nanoscale Science, Engineering & Technology


NanoExpress is a mobile laboratory which presents the world of nanotechnology to schools and the general public. It consists of a mobile van with 208 square feet of lab space designed to facilitate hands-on experiments but also capable of doing nanotechnology research. Experimental areas include: Introduction to Passive Nanoparticles, Introduction to Self Assembly, Introduction to Micro and Nanofabrication, “Chips are for Kids”, Instruments for NanoScience, Shape Memory Alloys, and Soft Lithography. Undergraduate, graduate lab assistants, and RETs help supervise experiments.

NanoExpress visits schools in the capital area as occasionally well as up and down the east coast.
