The National Informal STEM Education Network (NISE Net) is making 350 free toolkits with hands-on activities available to eligible museums and public planetariums in the United States*.

The kits contain engaging hands-on Earth and space science experiments with connections to science, technology, and society.

Applications for the toolkits must be made by 1 November at the NISENet website:

Funding for the project is by NASA through Arizona State University and the Science Museum of Minnesota.

In addition to Earth and space, science topics include chemistry, a kit devoted to Frankenstein in commemoration of the book's 200th anniversary, biology, and sustainability.

There also is an exhibition called Sun, Earth, Universe that also is available in Espanol: Sol, Tierra, Universo.


*Interested sites outside the United States are invited to download the digital assets for this and past toolkit activities at the NISENet website, which includes a list of easily-available and inexpensive items.
