Science meets art in new show

Have your say

THE tiny world of nanoscience has been brought to life at Magna Science Adventure Centre in Rotherham.

In a fascinating new exhibition called Giants of the Infinitesimal, top scientists have worked with artists to explore nanotechnology – which deals with matter, structures and molecules just billionths of a metre across.

The show features large-scale versions of nano-particles which visitors can manipulate in the same way that scientists do in the laboratory.

It aims to show how the new area of science can radically transform many fields, including healthcare, computing, energy, and waste reduction.

University of Sheffield staff have collaborated on the project.

The show runs until Monday, November 5, at Magna.
