Every year, Northwestern University hosts an event known as All Scout Nano Day where Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, members of Venturing Crews, and their leaders come to learn about nanotechnology. The scouts present research projects, tour labs, and participate in a variety of activities that demonstrate why small science is such a big deal. To date, the event has attracted over 1000 participants. The photos below were taken during the 11th annual All Scout Nano Day held on Saturday, March 2nd 2013.
