Shipyard Nano Spot

Visit our Shipyard for construction challenges!  We provide blocks, tubes, ramps and more. You provide the imagination!  

The Shipyard is also a “Nano Spot” where you can learn about emerging nanotechnologies used in engineering and construction. One example is a new type of paint, infused with carbon nanotubes, that can detect strain in bridges, buildings, and airplanes before the signs of deformation become visible to the naked eye.
