Real Scientists Nano

The Real Scientists Nano project consists of two parts: The twitter account which is taken over (curated) by a different scientist every week, and a podcast in which we interview the curators about their work and careers. The twitter takeover is an extension of the broader and wider Real Scientists account which runs on a similar concept. 

Find out about all our past curators and listen to their interviews here!

Our vision

We want to bridge the gap between materials and nano scientists and the general public. 

Our Mission

Through twitter and podcasting, we provide a free accessible platform for scientists to engage with the public.

We encourage scientists to discuss both their research and their experiences, to challenge stereotypes and provide diverse role models.

Throughout my undergraduate career in chemistry, I had interesting encounters with a couple of professors who made it difficult to love science and chemistry. Even trying my hardest and showing up in my exam results, they would question my ability to be successful 1/5

Yesterday we asked, what would you consider to be your first experiment🥼🧪!! Let me tell you mine: first, we start with a fundamental question, does the light of the refrigerator stay on when you close the door? The curious child in me needed answers!!

Hiii, helloo, bueennaaaas!! My name is Dr. Luis R. De Jesús Báez (@ldjesus_ ) and I will be your emcee for the week. Big shoutout to the admin for giving me the chance to talk to you all. 👏

This week I will be talking about growing up in Puerto Rico; the desire… 1/2


✨To Transition or to take a Break....That's the Question✨

Please welcome @ldjesus_ and listen to the latest episode of #UnderTheMicroscope to know what is coming your way this week!🎧👇
