Nanogirl and the Imaginauts

Nanogirl and the Imaginauts—this is the place where imagination meets science. All branches of science in the world are interconnected. We explore this idea by showing kids how to use their imagination to create their own Hairy Theory ideas about how the world works. But it is important to always keep in mind that while some science is right, some science is SNOTT! In the end, only the Imaginauts will know the truth. In a series of wild games, some get it right, some get it wrong and get 'snotted on'. But it's always fun, it's always messy, and it just might blow your mind!
