MORGANTOWN -

The Children's Discovery Museum celebrated "the biggest event for the smallest science" Saturday.

WVU students and faculty came to the museum for "Nano Days." Demonstrations and activities were used to help teach the kids about nano-science."

Nano is short for nanometer which equals one billionth of a meter.

"It's really, really tiny. The idea is that scientists and researchers are studying things at this size- level to engineer things and make technology better, make computers faster," said Aniketa Shinde, from WVU. "There's also something called Nano medicine, which is used to make medicine better and more effective."

WVU is one of the places doing research on Bio-Nano technology.
