The International NanoScience Community is Official Collaborator of the San Diego Science Festival 2009


Over 250 Free Events Already Scheduled

Have you ever wanted to sit down and chat with a Nobel Laureate? Did you know that red wine not only goes well with steak, but also has anti-aging properties? Have you ever wanted to uncover the mysteries of baseball’s knuckleball? Were you curious about the science behind Harry Potter’s magic? These and other intriguing questions will be answered at the Inaugural Non Profit San Diego Science Festival (SDSF), the biggest celebration of science the West Coast has ever seen!

The Festival will descend on San Diego with events throughout the county in March and April 2009 with something for everyone, from the smallest child to even the most established scientist. The first of its kind on the West Coast, the San Diego Science Festival promises to be the ultimate multi-cultural, multi-generational, multi-disciplinary celebration of science.

Inspired by international science festivals that draw crowds in the hundreds of thousands, the goal of the San Diego Science Festival is to increase community awareness of science and inspire our nation’s youth to consider science-related careers. At the same time, the science festival will unite our community and showcase the amazing science and innovation occurring throughout San Diego. The month-long event celebrates the Science and Innovation all around us with events, lectures, field trips and activities countywide to engage all audiences from students, to teachers, to parents, to science professionals, or anyone that is just curious. The theme of this year¹s Festival is the Science of You.

I am in India. I am a science and science fiction writer. Also running a science NGO for popularisation of science and spreading awareness on key areas like global warming, ozone layer depletion, alternative energy and vehicles.I wish to participate if sponsorship is available. Accommadation needed. May present papers and actively involve in myself in all areas. Kindly reply early.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
