Kids learn about the smallest of science

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. - Hundreds of kids in eastern North Carolina learned about the smallest science on Friday morning.

GO-Science and the ECU Honors College teamed up to host NanoDays at the university's student center.

The kids took part in six different activities that engages them and teaches about nanoparticles.

This type of science is important but difficult to grasp. The program strives to make it more interesting for the young ones.

Six-year-old Sidney Johnson loves it.

"We touched worm goo. When we put it in the water, it turned into squishy stuff. And when squeezed it popped. And it turned really squishy,” said Johnson.

GO-Science is in the process of renovating a building in Uptown Greenville to hold events just like NanoDays.

Right now, the building on Dickinson Avenue is almost finished. Exterior renovations should start by the end of the month.
