"It was clear that it worked even in a very crude format," says Dr. Richard W. Siegel, the director of the nanotechnology center.

...
In early 2004, Schadler, Garde, and Siegel were awarded a U.S. National Science Foundation grant to make a new Molecularium show for digital domes.
...
"If you are doing something that makes a positive impact, it drives you to keep pushing that idea further to reach broader audiences," says Siegel, a world-renowned nanotechnology pioneer. He was amazed at the transformation that one screening of Molecularium had upon his young granddaughter. After viewing the film, she seemed to be looking for atoms and molecules everywhere, and seeing the world around her with new eyes.
