Evaluation and Research Finding: Use of NISE Net Materials:

Liz Rosino, OMSI

The NISE Network’s online annual survey was created to learn more about the experiences of participants in NISE Net and how the Network might better support their activities. Many of you have participated over the past couple of years (thank you!), so we thought you might be interested in some of the results. We'll be highlighting different findings from the 2013 survey over the next few months in our Evaluation and Research Findings blog posts.

Featured Findings about the use of NISE Net materials

  • NanoDays events can often be a large part of an organization’s nano education efforts, but through the Annual Partner Survey we have also found that partners are using NISE Network materials during other times of the year. The most common settings for the use of these materials include: cart demonstrations and brief table top activities, K-12 school and community partner outreach activities, and special events like family nights, festivals, and chemistry events.
  • Other ways organizations incorporate NISE materials are through camps, club activities, labs, exhibits, and during professional development for staff or college courses for students.
