The main goal of our project is to examine online discourses about the Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network (NISE Net) related work by tracking media coverage and discussions online. We are particularly interested in exploring how NISE Net and its products get mentioned in and help inform these online discussions. The findings will allow us to have better understandings of how science centers and museums communicate with their stakeholders and various publics using social media tools, how the public attends to scientific discussions online, and the real world impacts that organizations, such as NISE Net, can have on public communication of science.
