Seeing Nano novel visualisation tools: Nano-origami

  • Material for workshops and exhibitions

The SeeingNano Visualisation Tools are available to the wider community on this resources page. You can download as well all the tools and guidance documents needed to print them and play with them. The tools have been devised to be used as a toolset for an exhibition or an activity around nano- science and technology. All the tools are available in Czech, Italian, Portuguese, Slovenian and Spanish. You can also find the Nano Profiler and the Memory Game in German in Dutch. The Nano-origami will allow the participant to ‘build’ their own nanomaterials to better understand their structures.

This resource was produced in September 2016.

The objective of SeeingNano was to create novel visualisation tools for enhanced nanotechnology awareness. Social scientists, nano scientists and visualisation experts collaborated to develop tools allowing different target audiences to “see at the nano scale” thus engaging with the breadth of nanotechnologies and the uncertainties and potential risks connected to them. A public repository of tools and best practices is now available on the project's website and in our resources section.
