The InformalScience.org database contains project, research and evaluation resources designed to support the informal STEM education community in a variety of learning environments. The Center for the Advancement of Informal Science Education (CAISE) works in collaboration with the National Science Foundation (NSF) Advancing Informal STEM Learning (AISL) Program to strengthen and advance the field of professional informal science education and its infrastructure by providing resources for practitioners, researchers, evaluators and STEM-based professionals.
Howtosmile is a collection of the best educational materials on the web, in addition to learning tools and services – all designed especially for those who teach school-aged kids in non-classroom settings. earch over 3,500 of the very best science and math activities on the web.
NASA Wavelength is your pathway into a digital collection of Earth and space science resources for educators of all levels – from elementary to college, to out-of-school programs. These resources, developed through funding from the NASA Science Mission Directorate (SMD), have undergone a peer-review process through which educators and scientists ensure the content is accurate and useful in an educational setting.
The main goal of our project is to examine online discourses about the Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network (NISE Net) related work by tracking media coverage and discussions online. We are particularly interested in exploring how NISE Net and its products get mentioned in and help inform these online discussions. The findings will allow us to have better understandings of how science centers and museums communicate with their stakeholders and various publics using social media tools, how the public attends to
This Web Seminar, developed in collaboration with the National Science Digital Library, took place on Wednesday, November 11, 2009 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Eastern time. Dr. Lisa Regalla, Science Editor for DragonflyTV provided participants with a greater understanding of nanoscale science by giving a brief history of how our understanding of nanotechnology has rapidly grown over time. Dr. Regalla cited several examples of nano-level phenomena found in nature that scientists have studied.
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. Topics include: 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. Presenter: Joyce Palmer Georgia Tech NNIN Recorded January 31, 2014
NanoBuzz is a web-based kiosk featuring exhibit-ready access to current nanoscale science, technology and engineering and emerging research in the news. Website includes four online puzzle games: Help assemble the carbon nanotubes, Help filter the water, Try to find the nanoparticle, and Test your nanotech memory.
NanoSpace is a web-based, virtual theme park for children of all ages! Explore the world of atoms and molecules with games, activities and short animations in a fun-filled amusement park and learning environment launched in 2012.
Researchers at the London Centre for Nanotechnology (LCN) are asking members of the public to help unlock the secrets of magnetism at the molecular scale by taking part in a citizen science project. The project’s website invites volunteers from across the world to analyze microscope images of individual molecules, which have characteristic flower shapes. Anyone can take part, and only a few clicks of the computer mouse are required to collect valuable information.
