Staff and Volunteer training materials for NanoDays.
Initially developed by the New York Hall of Science to establish a partnership with a local Boys and Girls Club, this four-week After School Framework designed for children between the ages of 8 to 12 highlights NISE Net activities, demos and programs and provides the children with a basic understanding and appreciation for nanoscale science concepts.
These resources are designed to assist museums to reach underserved audiences in your community that you aren’t currently engaging in learning about nanoscale science, engineering, and technology (“nano”). They include a collaboration tips, profiles of national youth-serving organizations, and a video on "Creating Successful Collaborations: Museum and Community Partnerships" (5 minute video)
This is a recording of a NISE Network online brown-bag conversation held in August 2014 on how to better engage girls in museum programing! Presenters share lessons learned, resources from PBS programing SciGirls and NSF funded Girls RISE (Raising Interest in Science and Engineering) Museum Network, and some specific tips and tricks to better engage girls in upcoming NanoDays 2015 activities.
