When Michele Wiles, Director of Play and Discovery for the emerging Children’s Museum of St. Augustine spearheaded our partnership with NISE Network last winter, it paved the way for bringing truly unique STEAM-based learning experiences to our community. From our first Exploring Earth and Space family workshop event to an event for Big Brothers Big Sisters and their littles, the Earth & Space toolkit has brought enthusiasm and new partnerships into our emerging children's museum and community.
NISE Network partners all across the country celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing all throughout July. Here are just a few samples of partner events that were shared online through social networking sites with the NISE Network.
Dr. Anna Cavinato, Eastern Oregon University, La Grande, OR
When the Student Chapter of the American Chemical Society (Chemistry Club) received the NISE Net's Explore Science: Let’s Do Chemistry kit in September of 2018, it was like early Christmas! The Eastern Oregon University (EOU) Chemistry Club has a long standing tradition of bringing hands-on science activities to the local community and the region. We are located in the northeastern corner of Oregon, in a largely rural area where often schools have limited resources to provide lab-based activities, and the kit seemed immediately the perfect match for our outreach events.
Hear from project team members as they discuss ChemAttitudes project research findings and a framework for designing and facilitating informal hands-on chemistry activities with public audiences, and how they might be applied to other STEM topics.
Join NISE Network partners to learn more about the Explore Science: Earth & Space project, and how your organization can become more involved in this exciting opportunity. In this online workshop, we'll present a general introduction to the project and an overview of what’s in the new 2020 Explore Science: Earth & Space toolkit, including information about how to apply and eligibility requirements. Additionally, you’ll have the opportunity to hear from some of our recent Earth & Space toolkit recipients and learn more about how they engaged their audiences through their own Earth and space events.
The Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC) 2019 Annual Conference is being hosted by the Ontario Science Centre in Toronto, Canada from September 21 through September 24, 2019. Get your passports ready and join the NISE Network in its many activities taking place this year!
The National Informal STEM Education Network (NISE Net) is a community of informal educators and scientists dedicated to supporting learning about science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) across the United States.
What does NISE Net do?
The NISE Net community works year-round to develop and disseminate educational materials and resources. Our educational experiences take the form of small exhibitions, hands-on activity kits, programs, and public forums. Our products are scientist reviewed and receive rigorous testing.
This website is an online digital library of educational products and tools designed for educators and scientists, as well as a source of professional development resources for those working in the field of informal science education.
