Nano by Jess Wade, illustrated by Melissa Castrillu00f3n

Draw, experiment and invent as we take you right inside some amazing materials to explore their atomic structures.

Join Imperial physicist Dr Jess Wade and award-winning illustrator Melissa Castrillón to explore the spectacular science of nanomaterials.

We’ll shrink ourselves down to the size of atoms and molecules to explore exactly what makes certain nanomaterials so incredible. By moving atoms very carefully, scientists can create extraordinary nanomaterials, creating technologies to build a better world. The workshop will include hands-on activities, experiments and drawing challenges. Join in their conversation about how materials can change our lives and protect the planet – and pick up some drawing tips too.

This workshop is aimed at children aged 5-12 and their families.

To take part you will need paper, coloured pens or pencils, and a few household materials. We will let you know all the details before the event.
