Kids made tiny discoveries Sunday that could lead to big innovation.
Gannon's "Nano Days" at the Millcreek Mall introduced kids to nanotechnology, a growing field of science that works with matter at an atomic and molecular scale.
Hands-on activities gave kids a fun way to learn how the particles work.
Scientists say these particles have applications in all fields, from medicine and electronics.
"Nanotechnology is one of the biggest tech revolutions that's ever gonna hit the human race," said Gannon Chemistry professor Carl Hultman, "and the amount of change that's gonna occur in the near future is gonna be mind boggling.
He marveled, "A whole new industry is going to be established, current industries are going to be gone just like the horse and buggy when cars appeared."
"Nano Days is a national effort, involving more than two million people across the country.
