We are looking forward to a new and exciting chapter in MRS Meetings!
Online Brown-Bag: Activities and Conversations about Synthetic Biology: The Building with Biology Project
Learn how you can get involved in a national conversation about synthetic biology! In this online brown-bag conversation, we'll present a general introduction to the fast-growing field of biological engineering and describe a NSF-funded project that brings together professionals from the scientific community and informal science educators to create conversations between synthetic biology scientists and members of the public around the societal implications of this topic.
The following public outreach and professional development events are sponsored by the Materials Research Society Foundation and various partners listed below.
The NISE Network National Chemistry Week page: www.nisenet.org/national-chemistry-week featuring nanoscience, technology, and engineering activities for the public suitable for National Chemistry Week.
Come learn about findings from several NISE Net evaluation studies focusing on the Network’s public impacts. In this brown-bag conversation you’ll get (a) a snapshot of the entirety of NISE Net's ten-year public impact, and (b) a description of the kind of impacts that any single institution might have on its visitors.
Join this conversation for an introduction to NISE Net’s new Museum and Community Partnerships project, which will support efforts by Network partners to develop or improve existing partnerships with local community-based organizations. Through these partnerships, museums will be able to extend their reach to underserved audiences and help community organizations provide high-quality STEM learning experiences to their audiences.
Come hear the highlights from the NISE Network Professional Impacts Summative Evaluation. This longitudinal study explored how the Network impacted museum and university professionals’ sense of community, understanding of nano content, and implementation of nano education.
Online Brown-Bag: Making Evaluation Design Decisions: When Basic Evaluation Methods Meet the Real World (Recorded)
Come attend this upcoming brown-bag presentation to learn more about how members of the NISE Net Evaluation Team adapted basic data collection methods to support various phases of NISE Net Evaluation Studies. You'll gain new perspectives on how to implement basic methods and an understanding of factors to consider when applying these methods at your own institution.
