National Nano Day 2022 - Do it like FEYNMAN!
Do it Like Feynman!
USF New Advancements in Nanotechnology Organization (NANO) launches an online campaign to celebrate National Nanotechnology Day and spread awareness about this field of research.
What is NANO day?
Event Date: October 09, 2022
National Nanotechnology Day is an annual celebration featuring a series of community-led events and activities on or around October 9 to help raise awareness of nanotechnology, how it is currently used in products that enrich our daily lives, and the challenges and opportunities it holds for the future.
This date, 10/9, pays homage to the nanometer scale, 10−9 meters.
Who is Richard Feynman?
Richard Feynman was one of the most influential scientists of modern times. He was an American theoretical physicist, known for his work in the path integral formulation of quantum mechanics, the theory of quantum electrodynamics, the physics of the superfluidity of supercooled liquid helium, as well as his work in particle physics for which he proposed the parton model. For contributions to the development of quantum electrodynamics, Feynman received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1965 jointly with Julian Schwinger and Shin'ichirō Tomonaga.
Most importantly, he is considered the father of Nanotechnology. In addition to being a smart and successful scientist, Feynman was known for having a unique approach in learning and had a wholesome fun perspective on science and physics. He introduced “the Feynman technique” which is a mental model (a breakdown of his personal
thought process) to convey information using concise thoughts and simple language.
How can you participate?
We invite our friends, colleagues, faculty, and every person interested in nanotechnology to participate. Simply, take a photo/selfie while doing one of Feynman’s famous poses and post it on your personal page on either LinkedIn or Instagram while adding the below hashtags on the description of the post.
