The NISE Network is a community of informal science educators and scientists. Our community is extensive and there are many ways you and your institution can engage us and our partners. By participating with any part of NISE Net, you are now part of our community!

It’s an amazing thing to bring together higher-education people, community centers, science centers, and people like me who come from formal education. Everybody seems to have a place and a way to get something meaningful out of this partnership.

More about Community

Philadelphia Science Festival NanoDays activities at the Franklin Institute

Hundreds of communities and thousands of educators across the United States participate in the NISE Network.

NISE Net is active in communities across the entire country. Partner organizations use Network resources to engage diverse audiences in their communities, including groups that are traditionally underserved by STEM institutions and underrepresented in STEM fields. 

NISE Net partners share resources, ideas, and experiences with each other.

NISE Network leaders and practitioners develop and study hands-on activities, exhibits, public programs, and media. Our project teams create resources and coordinate activities nationally and regionally, while partner organizations implement project activities locally. As Network partners participate in project activities, they adapt and improve NISE Net materials, generating new ideas and learning.
