The University of Nebraska-Lincoln is opening a display to showcase some of the tiniest things in nature and their real-world applications.
The "Nano to Nature" display at Pioneers Park Nature Center opens on Monday and will stay available for public viewing through January. It will explore the science behind the tiny structures of snowflakes, lotus leaves, butterflies and minerals.
Researchers have used nanoscience to develop stain-resistant clothing, kitchen countertops and computer screens.
Pioneers Park Nature Center has helped children and families learn about nature for more than 50 years.
The Nature Center is open Monday through Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m., excluding holidays. Admission is free.
