SNI at the Lenzburg May market

The Swiss Nanoscience Institute (SNI) will be at the Lenzburg May market on May 9 to provide visitors with insights into the nano world.

The SNI team will use a small experiment to show how microfluidic systems work. Today, researchers use these systems in a variety of ways. Visitors can use simple materials to create their own fluidic system, which works in a similar way to a pregnancy test and can be used to detect the presence of starch, for example. There will also be puzzles to solve from the fascinating nano world and prizes to be won.

We would be delighted to see you at our stand at Torgasse 71 in Lenzburg.
