[cid:image001.jpg at 01CB32F0.98762310]

Drop into Tilley's in Lyneham and check out the nano-trolley: a load of real and hypothetical products based on nanotechnology. This technology is now being used in everyday items including clothes, phones, computers, packaging, sunscreens and cosmetics - with many more in the pipeline.



Thought provocation by host Dr Paul Willis (ABC TV Catalyst).

Opinions and insights from experts - Dr Tim Senden (ANU), Professor Jim Williams (ANU), Dr Lyria Bennett Moses (UNSW), Dr Michael Biercuk (USYD).



Have a drink, have a listen, have your say. Bar and kitchen open.



* Why does everything change when things get really small?

* Why is nanotechnology so controversial?

* Is it safe?

* Do we need new laws to protect us and the environment?



Presented by ABC Science for National Science Week.

Tilley's Devine Café and Bar, cnr Wattle and Brigalow Sts, Lyneham
