This evening pub event was first run in May, 2008. It was fully attended
with around 230 members of the public of all ages present. At least the same
number of individuals registered their interest but couldn't be accommodated
on the night. Hence, the event is being run again this 2nd July:

Nanotech for the terrified!
Due to such popular demand, we are running another Nanotech for the
terrified! event. If you missed out last time round, don't make the same
There's something creating a big buzz in the science world. Something that's
actually really small - and we're talking millionths of a metre small.
What is it? Nanotechnology - engineering on a miniature scale (nano is Greek
for dwarf). It's all around you - just take a closer look at your sunscreen,
sports equipment or car. But what's the big interest?
Find out by joining Flinders University's Professor Joe Shapter and Brenton
Banham and CSIROSEC's Kylie Turton for an entertaining, hands-on exploration
of the real-life science behind nanotechnology. Take part in 'The Nanotube
Challenge', make some of the Graffiti Research Lab's 'Throwies' and discover
the answers to some big questions about very small worlds.
'Nanotech for the terrified!' is at The Governor Hindmarsh Hotel, 59 Port
Road, on Wednesday 2 July 2008 from 6.30pm - 8.00pm. It's free but
registrations are essential as seats are limited. Contact Kate now via
mailto:shepherd.kate at saugov.sa.gov.au to reserve your place. Senior
secondary students welcome when accompanied by an adult (if under 18).
This event is in association with the CSIRO Science Education Centre.
Sponsored by the Department of the Premier and Cabinet, Government of South
Australia; and The Advertiser.
