As shutdowns and restrictions across the country are gradually being lifted and museums begin to reopen their doors and engage their communities, how are NISE Network partner organizations faring? Over the past few months, shutdowns have caused our institutions to rethink and redesign the ways in which we engage our communities, which programs and events to continue virtually versus holding in-person, and how to preserve our core hands-on identities. During this workshop we featured a current look at the science around COVID-19 and then heard from a few NISE Network Partner organizations on their lessons learned from reopening. Online Workshop was recorded 6-30-2020.
