Chapel Hill: Free DragonFly TV Nano Day on Saturday
I know we're all looking for fun, free family events these days. My friend, Manic Mommies' Erin Martin Kane, told me about a cool event happening Saturday afternoon in my own backyard, at Morehead Planetarium in Chapel Hill. I've always found nanotechnology quite intimidating, and it would be fun to hear it explained and demonstrated in understandable ways.
Here's the event info:
Dragonfly TV Nano Celebration
Saturday, March 28, 2009
It's time for the Dragonfly TV Nano Celebration ... and YOU'RE INVITED!
During the summer, Dragonfly TV — the popular children's science show on public television — taped two episodes about nanotechnology in North Carolina (one episode here at Morehead Planetarium and Science Center, another episode with our friends at the Museum of Life and Science). The episodes will be featured in April on UNC-TV.
Morehead is celebrating the premiere and saluting NanoDays with its Dragonfly TV Nano Celebration for families. Come watch the Morehead premiere of the Dragonfly TV episode taped here, learn about nanotechnology with hands-on activities, tour a scientist's lab, take home a fun Dragonfly TV giveaway and maybe even meet a local star of the show!
