In this lively session, members of the Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network (NISE Network) will share their experiences engaging young audiences. Our examples will focus on the cutting-edge field of nanotechnology, and our approaches and strategies will be more generally applicable to engaging young audiences in STEM topics. Presenters will share our many successes—as well as lessons learned from a few less-than-successful experiments.
