The National Informal STEM Education Network (NISE Net) is a community of informal educators and scientists dedicated to supporting learning about science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) across the United States.
What does NISE Net do?
The NISE Net community works year-round to develop and disseminate educational materials and resources. Our educational experiences take the form of small exhibitions, hands-on activity kits, programs, and public forums. Our products are scientist reviewed and receive rigorous testing.
This website is an online digital library of educational products and tools designed for educators and scientists, as well as a source of professional development resources for those working in the field of informal science education.
