The Science Spectrum will host Nano Day Saturday, April 4 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Alana Baliga from the Science Spectrum explained exactly what Nano Day is to Tom and Laura on Lubbock's First News.

"Nano science is the science of tiny things, things that we can't see," she said, adding that a nano is a billionth of a meter in size.

Nano technology can be used for a variety of purposes. A few that Baliga noted were in the creation of geckskin (something that us humans could potentially use to climb walls), treatment of cancers and in tracking devices.
