Nanototouch Final Brochure

Nanototouch final brochure

The NANO TO TOUCH project (2009-2011) set out to encourage visitors to European science centres and museums to interact with researchers in a totally new way - either by just stopping by to ask a question or observing the scientist’s work as it takes place in the museum.

This is its final brochure.

The concept, based on the Deutsches Museum’s O pen Lab experience, involved setting up a laboratory space inside exhibition areas of science centres and museums where scientists work in public view and answer visitors’ queries about their research. Participating scientists were trained in science communication and spent up to six months performing their research in front of citizens.

The objective of the Nanototouch project was to bring scientists into direct contact with the public using open science labs in science centres and museums.
