From Fall 2014 through Fall 2015, the Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network (NISE Net) Public Impacts evaluation team conducted a descriptive summative study aimed at understanding the variation, combination, and concentration of ways in which Network partners utilized Network educational resources and products together with their own resources to offer the public opportunities to engage in learning about nanoscale science, engineering, and technology ("nano"). This study was designed to explore how the NISE Network’s range of resources were used by the diverse range of Network partners, and how individual institutions felt that they were doing at providing their publics with positive experiences and learning outcomes.
