Stars have an interesting story to tell—but where can you start with your visitors? This online workshop will cover the science behind two of the 2020 Explore Science: Earth & Space toolkit activities – Star Formation and Nebula Spin Art. Guest content experts will discuss how to use the activities on their own or together to introduce the life cycles of stars and their amazing diversity.
This online workshop will cover the science behind two of the 2020 Explore Science: Earth & Space toolkit activities – Design, Build, Test and Mission to Space. After a brief overview of each activity and its resources, our guest presenter, George Gorospe, a research and control systems engineer at NASA Ames Research Center, will show us his lab and answer your questions.
This partner highlight will focus on Ingram Planetarium's experience and the process used to fully integrate a NISE Network Explore Science: Earth & Space toolkit into the dome theater with the goal of diversifying content, creating more engaging and interactive experiences in the dome for the learner, and to further empower Ingram’s education team to execute interactive programs in the planetarium environment.
Haile Planetarium is a 61 seat, 30 foot planetarium that is part of Northern Kentucky University. In recent years, we have had about 10,000 visitors per year. One recent expansion that has helped us grow is the NISE Network's Explore Science: Earth & Space 2019 toolkit. This is helping us get through our largest obstacle yet.
This online workshop will share successful approaches for engaging museum guests in learning about sustainability. Presenters will introduce key concepts related to sustainability and share ways that NISE Network partners are integrating sustainability into exhibits, programs, and other public-facing museum experiences.
This online workshop will help your organization "walk the walk" when it comes to sustainability. Presenters will share specific steps museums can take, from integrating sustainability into their policy and governance to greening their facilities and operations.

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.
