Step-by-step advice on planning, developing, funding, and maintaining education outreach partnerships between research centers and museums. This 50-page guide is an updated and consolidated version of the older "Small Steps, Big Impact" guide posted online. Helpful for both science museum and research center planners, this 2013 edition is available both as a free 25-page landscape-view PDF download and as a handy 50-page 6x9 printed booklet that can be ordered for $12 including shipping from the Museum of Science, Boston.
Small Steps, Big Impact: An Online Guide for Science Museums Developing Partnerships with University-Based Research Centers
This online guidebook offers strategies for science museums to use in developing and carrying out grant-funded education outreach partnerships with university-based researchers and research centers. An abridged, revised, and updated version is available in PDF or booklet form at http://www.nisenet.org/partner_guide Both versions were produced by the Strategic Projects Group at the Museum of Science, Boston, for the NISE Network.
The NACK Network offers a live webinar, hosted by MATEC NetWorks, every month to engage and educate those of you that are interested in learning more about nanotechnology related topics.
workforce development and careers
K-12 education outreach tools for community college programs
societal and ethical implications
safety and much more
Recordings, slides, and handouts are all archived and available.
The purpose of the webinar was to share resources available for the inclusion of nanoscale science and engineering into the K-12 curriculum and how this inclusion can meet state science standards.

The NanoHub.org site hosts a rapidly growing collection of simulation programs for nanoscale phenomena that run in the cloud and are accessible through a web browser. In addition to simulation devices, the NanoHUB education page provides online presentations, courses, learning modules, podcasts, animations, teaching materials, and more. These resources help users learn about the online simulation programs and about nanotechnology in general.
