In June 2013, NISE Net partners representing twenty informal education centers around the country explored how to better engage Hispanic/Latino audiences with nanoscale science, technology, and engineering. Workshop resources include the agenda, information on sheltered instruction, presentation slides, TBI resources, and workshop handouts.
The Children's Museum of Houston's 1,350 square foot permanent exhibition, The Matter Factory, offers a glimpse into the concepts of materials science, including properties of matter and potential uses for different substances and smart materials. The exhibition invites children and families to explore how matter matters in our daily lives. Exhibits experiment with different properties of matter, test and sort materials based on their properties, and examine unique properties of emerging materials recently developed by scientists.
