The Periodic Table of Chemical Elements is one of the most significant achievements in science, capturing the essence not only of chemistry, but also of physics and biology. It is a unique tool, enabling scientist to predict the appearance and properties of matter on the Earth and in the rest of the Universe. 2019 will be the 150th anniversary since Dmitry Mendeleev discovered the Periodic System and has been proclaimed the "International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements" (IYPT2019).

In the summer of 2019, many libraries across the country will celebrate space exploration in their summer reading programs. The slogan “A Universe of Stories” was chosen by library professionals to help inspire children of all ages to dream big, believe in themselves, and create their own story. The Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP) ( https://www.cslpreads.org ) is a consortium of states working together to provide high-quality summer reading program materials for children, teens, and adults at the lowest cost possible for their public libraries. CSLP actively shares innovative and a...
Join NISE Network partners to learn more about the Explore Science: Earth & Space project, and how your organization can become more involved in this exciting opportunity. In this online workshop, we'll present a general introduction to the project and an overview of what’s in the new 2020 Explore Science: Earth & Space toolkit, including information about how to apply and eligibility requirements. Additionally, you’ll have the opportunity to hear from some of our recent Earth & Space toolkit recipients and learn more about how they engaged their audiences through their own Earth and space events.
Hear from project team members as they discuss ChemAttitudes project research findings and a framework for designing and facilitating informal hands-on chemistry activities with public audiences, and how they might be applied to other STEM topics.
The Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC) 2019 Annual Conference is being hosted by the Ontario Science Centre in Toronto, Canada from September 21 through September 24, 2019. Get your passports ready and join the NISE Network in its many activities taking place this year!
Join us for an online workshop focusing on Growth Mindset in girls and the new 2019 Space Science badges for Girl Scouts - Cadettes (grades 6-8), Seniors (grades 9-10) and Ambassadors (grades 11-12). Presenters will explore ways to engage and encourage girls in STEM, and how to be more inclusive more generally. We'll also explore the newly released Girl Scout Space Science Badges, the Girl Scouts’ STEM strategy, and ways science museums can successfully engage girls in Earth and space science.
