Five Free Museums in Miami This Weekend
|Summer Camper Stefano Marks, 4, enjoys the new NANO exhibition.|
Explore the inner workings of one of the earliest diesel-electric submarines and an interactive micro-exhibit that encourages families to learn about nanoscale science, engineering and technology. The museum is showcasing the S101, a sub that was built in England, tested by the Swedish navy and once owned by an environmental group that painted it like an orca to chase whales away from whalers. "Nano" presents hands-on exhibits exploring the basics of nanoscience and engineering, and sections questioning, Where can you find nano?, What happens when things get smaller?, What's new about nano?, What does nano mean for us?, Static vs. Gravity, and a reading area.
