Partner Highlight: Nano Extravaganza in New York’s Capital Region!

Ali Jackson

In February of 2013, longtime NISE Net children’s museum partner, the Children’s Museum of Science and Technology in Troy, NY (CMOST), announced that it will become part of SUNY’s College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE). Under CNSE's leadership, more than $5 million will be invested to transform the Children's Museum into a world-renowned science center for young people—a hub for 21st century learning and discovery!

Partner Highlight: BIG nano Experiences at the South Dakota Discovery Center

Christina Akers

The South Dakota Discovery Center (SDDC) has always promoted cutting edge science and supported youth in their community. Currently touring the Nano mini-exhibit to schools and libraries throughout the Dakotas, SDDC works hard to bring their programming to students in underrepresented areas. Earlier this year, SDDC helped a local elementary/middle school robotics team achieve great success at the FIRST LEGO League State Tournament in Sioux Falls, SD.
