Rice’s Richard E. Smalley Institute for Nanoscale Science and Technology will play a role in the Children’s Museum of Houston’s NanoDays Bash on March 30.

The sixth annual festival at 1500 Binz St. will celebrate the science of very small things with a full day of exhibits, activities and educational programs.

It will also feature a “nano play” starring Jacob Robinson, a Rice assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering, at 1 p.m. In the play, “Attack of the Nanoscientist,” Robinson’s character foils a villain from the future who attempts to conquer the audience using nanoscience.

NanoDays events organized by the Nanoscale Informal Science Education network will be held at institutions nationwide through April 6.
