Educational Partners: Strong regional and national partnerships are the foundation of the NISE Network. We are developing an infrastructure for sharing resources and best practices among the expanding NISE Net community of people participating in nano informal science education activities.
The NISE Network community within the United States is organized around eight Regional Hubs based on geographic proximity. Regional hubs facilitate partner interaction in the Network, help museum educators connect with researchers and each other, host regional workshops, and provide support to institutions in their region. Regional hub contacts and a map can be found on our Network Community page.
Research Partners: The NISE Network also works directly with nanoscale and materials science research centers to help them establish effective education outreach partnerships with science museums through the Research Center Informal Science Education (RISE) partnership initiative. Our RISE partnerships group provides professional development, consulting, and resources for partnerships, and also develops trainings in communication and public engagement for early career researchers.
Also, our Inclusive Audiences team fosters and encourages the NISE Network's efforts to reach a diverse audience with regard to geography, dis/ability, gender, race/ethnicity, language, and income.
