Nanofura in Moscow — the mobile demo nanolaboratory

Continuing the theme of teaching nanotechnology in Moscow for two years, there nanolaboratory mobile, truck-transformer, which promotes nanotechnology among schoolchildren.
Nanofuru published a report about the "Big City".

In Moscow moves scientific truck-transformer. "Nanotrak" travels to schools and educational institutions, but is willing to come and to corporate and private parties. BG found out what it is and where it came from

For almost two years in Moscow in the general traffic flow moves space wagon form. She is parking is expanded on all sides, and it is the area within the size of a large one-bedroom kvartiru.Eto huge transforming truck, inside which there are 8 laboratory work on the topic of nanotechnology. Fura moved to Moscow, called at the school and strongly promotes the nanotechnology among schoolchildren.

Employees’ Nanotraka "say that in the world of mobile laboratories about 20, they are mainly devoted to one topic: biology, chemistry, physics, and there is a mobile library. Nanofur but there are only two in Germany, where coined this project, and in Moscow the last two years. To us, brought the Palace of Children and Youth "Intelligence" — city center science education. They proposed the idea to the Department of Education, who gave money, and universities have come up especially for this lab. Works in the whole track its own staff of young graduate students who are specially trained for this purpose.

The global idea of this project — to interest the students’ science of the future ", so that after school they continued their education in this field. "Nanotrak" parked on school grounds, where necessary should be able to connect to a 380-volt outlet, is transformed from all sides, and then the trailer turns into a class room of 40 square meters. m Within the class, projectors, sound amplifiers, laptops with video and nano-lab themselves. Each laboratory invented and made for the "Nanotraka" one of the Moscow schools — MSU, MISA, the Department of Nanotechnology other universities. All laboratory work students do it themselves. The lesson lasts 55 minutes and takes place as follows: students come and listen to a lecture graduate students about what is nanotechnology, then they demonstrate the real nanomaterials, they touch them, then get your hands nanoparticles, such as gold. As long as they delve into microscopes, poured from the flask into the flask with a special syringe fluid, teachers explain to them what is going on at this moment. You can check how to use fabric from special tank nanoigl hide from radar, because it does not transmit electromagnetic waves. At the same time, constantly twisting scientific and educational videos about medical implants coated with a biocompatible, about laser beams and nanoalloys possessing shape memory effect.

As children come there with their parents or teachers, it is not very clear who it is stronger. Children are happy that you can touch all the equipment to press the button, put your hands under the laser beams, and that in general, all this is happening in a huge van and not in school. The head of the municipality Printers Porkhun Alex, who participated in the general holiday on the Day of the guardian, and came to last track, asked a graduate student at the all the details of how to arrange a tour of this Trakai in their area, and checked each laboratory with his hands.

Call "Nanotrak" can any school, and if it’s under the Office of the Department of Education, all this for free. Usually truck comes to any one school, and all the surrounding schools come together. You can order a truck and a children’s holiday to his dacha, as long as he was, where to park, decompose and connect to electricity. It will cost about 90 thousand rubles for 7:00 the day, and this time, enough for about 150 people.
