Little things are making a big impact at Stepping Stones Museum for Children.

"Even though it may seem like science fiction, it will change the world we live in. Possibly more than electricity, possibly more than computers!"

The museum is celebrating NanoDays, bringing the study of nanoscience to Norwalk's children.

"NanoDays is a nation wide festival that was started by  the Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network and North Carolina University, that teaches the public about nanoscale science," said Stephanie Kadam, Education Specialist at Stepping Stones Museum for Children.

With interactive activities and a performance of Attack of the Nanoscientist, children are able to learn more about the field of nanoscience and its impact on life.

"There is the carbon nano-tube where children can build a nano-tube out of just carbon atoms. A nano-tube you can use for conducting electricity and making materials stronger because they are very strong," said Kadam.

Kadam said she wants kids who visit the museum for NanoDays that "nanoscience is all around us. It is in nature, it's in our technology and there is more coming and it's really exciting."

NanoDays runs at Stepping Stones until Sunday, April 6th. For more information visit
