Nano Day 2022: Explorers of the Nano Age

Happy Nano Day 2022!

MIT.nano Nano Day Coloring Book Cover.October 9 is National Nanotechnology Day—the day that celebrates the potency of the world at the scale of one nanometer, 10-9 or one billionth of a meter.

Every year, we celebrate 10/9 to shine a light on the potential of nanoscale discoveries and innovations to help solve some of the biggest challenges facing society today. For Nano Day 2022, MIT.nano has produced a coloring book, Explorers of the Nano Age.

The coloring book highlights MIT scientists and engineers working to make our world a better place, starting at the nanoscale. These pioneers are exploring solutions to challenges in health, climate, and energy; and discovering new possibilities in computing, communications, materials, manufacturing, and more—all through the power of nanotechnology.

We hope the book offers you education and inspiration. Happy coloring—and Happy Nano Day!
