The NISE Net runs a series of online brown-bag conversations focused on helping partners share their work and learn from others in the Network. The aim of the online brown-bag conversations is to increase the number of professional development opportunities available to our partners, create more channels for Network partners to learn from each other directly, and create ways for partners to follow-up on ideas or efforts that emerge at in-person meetings.

Exhibit Small Talk - Engaging Various Audiences with the Nano Mini-Exhibition

Wednesday, November 12th
2pm - 3pm ET / 11am - 12pm PT


  • Christina Akers, Science Museum of Minnesota
  • Juli Goss, Museum of Science, Boston
  • Idalia Ramos, University of Puerto Rico, Humacao
  • Andrew McGarrahan, Saint Louis Science Center
  • Douglas Borzynski, Buffalo Museum of Science

The Nano mini-exhibition was designed to have a very wide reach, with hosts in multiple settings across the United States. Thus, a large part of the development process was dedicated to creating tools to make the exhibition welcoming and accessible to as many people as possible. In this third conversation of the "Exhibits Small Talk" series, we will highlight the resources available from the NISE Net for audience engagement around the Nano mini-exhibition and share how some partner host sites have utilized and adapted resources to create uniquely engaging opportunities for their own distinctive audiences. We’ll also share evaluation work done around inclusive audiences and Nano.

This online brown-bag conversation is designed to provide valuable examples to aid in your work, whether you are preparing to host Nano, currently have the piece on your floor, or are just looking for new ways to enhance nano promotion at your museum.
