This conversation provides an introduction to NISE Net’s new Museum & Community Partnerships project, which will support efforts by Network partners to develop or improve existing partnerships with local community-based organizations. Through these partnerships, museums will be able to extend their reach to underserved audiences and help community organizations provide high-quality STEM learning experiences to their audiences. During the brown-bag, presenters introduce the project and walk through the eligibility and application process for the physical Explore Science kit.
