shutterstock_206705884The Boston Museum of Science is a pretty amazing institution. As a member of the museum’s Board of Overseers and a longtime supporter, I can attest to the high quality and diversity of the museum’s exhibits and programs, as well as its mission in playing a leading role in transforming the nation’s relationship with science and technology.

A shining example of this is the museum’s NanoDays 2015, which was held this past April.  NanoDays is a nationwide celebration of nanoscale science where attendees can enjoy nano-related activities throughout the museum. Visitors of all ages have the opportunity to imagine, discover, and explore a world that’s too small to see.  During the most recent event, a short film was debuted, “From Lab To Fab: Pioneers in Nanomanufacturing” which follows the story of two nanotech entrepreneurs navigating the rocky road from discovery to commercialization, with products ranging from tiny implantable body sensors to bullet-proof vests and aircraft flooring.

Produced by the Boston Museum of Science with Emmy Award-Winning NOVA producer Lawrence Klein, the film features my client Peter Antoinette, Nanocomp Technologies, Inc.  as well as Ahmed Busnaina, Northeastern University, and their contribution to nano-manufacturing.  I encourage anyone who enjoys cutting-edge technology to watch the film.

Pretty cool stuff to have these two innovators in New England!
