Partnerships in the Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network (NISE Net): A study of partnerships between university scientists and museum professionals

This report describes findings from SRI’s research on Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network (NISE Net)-supported partnerships between university scientists and museum professionals to educate the public about nano-scale science, engineering, and technology (“nano”). These kinds of partnerships have the potential to leverage the expertise of both scientists and museum professionals, which is a particularly important benefit in an area as complex and as difficult to distill for public consumption as nano.

Science Writing Workshop: How to tell a story, How to conduct an interview

This workshop on scientific journalism and interviewing skills was prepared and given by a team of scientists, educators and editorial staff at the Materials Research Society. The workshop is designed as a full-day, with a post-workshop assignment and individual follow-up by the instructional staff. The instructional design is modifiable so that this can be taught as two independent half-day workshops. Ideal participant size is 15.

nanoHUB Education Page

The 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.
