Welcome to the exciting world of Nanodots - where education, science and creative play all blur together. Every day people are discovering new applications using Nanodots. These discoveries range from realizing that exactly 7 nanodots form a perfect filled circle, to applying their use in holding screws on screwdrivers. What's amazing is that each discovery relates to a fundamental principle of geometry, math, science, magnetism... and the list goes on. Wouldn't it be great if we were able to teach these fundamental principles through the course of play? How far can just a few nanodots take us?
We are excited to offer a workshop program for schools and science centers across North America. The program was created to enhance the students’ learning experience when it comes to science. Nanodots will encourage participants to use imagination and think outside the box in an exercise of mind and matter. They serve as an educational aid that allows students to intuitively question size, shape, the relative position of figures and properties of space. Mimicking natural principles of point-shape geometry, Nanodots are an ideal medium for rich visual demonstrations of particle interactions, magnetic fields, molecular structures, laws of physics, and much more.
The underlying versatility of Nanodot construction comes from two main factors; the first is the consistency in dimension of each dot, and the second is the consistency of strength. Nanodots are engineered to exacting levels of precision for the purpose of geometric modeling and the evaluation of mathematical models. This degree of precision is only possible from the years of magnetic engineering expertise by the engineers at Nano Magnetics.
Whether you are a teacher, professor, or program administrator, let your students experiment with the dots in an endless number of creative ways, whether you decide to host activities, contests, or assignments. Make each session a fun experience that is guaranteed to capture everyone's attention and boost participation.

The record holder of the largest magnetic sculpture was presented to Nano Magnetics in Hollywood California on January 14, 2011 in the GBK celebrity gift suite in honor of the Golden Globes.
The completed structure consisted of 550,000 individual Nanodots, and weighed over 600 Lbs!
