Thursday, May 3 2018 started like any other typical Hawaiian day in paradise on the island of Hawaii, the state’s largest and most geologically active island, when without warning first responders began receiving calls of cracks in the roads and unusual noises in Leilani Estates Subdivision. To this day many residents continue to struggle to recover from this life altering event, buoyed only by hope and the Aloha Spirit of family and friends in this tight knit community accustomed to coming together to rebuild after natural disasters. The State and County of Hawaii continue to deliver assistance to the communities most affected by the eruption and have tapped the Hawaii Science and Technology Museum, a NISE Network Partner, to help rebuild the local workforce and industries through STEM education and programming.
Are you interested in using your Explore Science Earth & Space toolkit in an outdoor setting such as at a beach or on a guided canoe trip? Presenters will share some best practices, strategies, and logistical tips for outdoor programming, including resources for establishing local partnerships to help develop your own outdoor programming using the Explore Science: Earth and Space toolkits.
Join us for a conversation on how to design and adapt experiences for audiences with diverse and special needs. Presenters will discuss practices, partnerships, and experiences on programming for neurodiverse, deaf, blind, and visually-impaired audiences. Participants should leave feeling more confident in beginning to think about how to best reach, serve, and design for audiences that may not otherwise be best served by current programming.
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.
