The East Kentucky Science Center & Varia Planetarium has been selected by the National Informal STEM Education Network (NISE Network) as one of 250 science centers around the country to receive “Explore Science: Let’s Do Chemistry” education kits.
In collaboration with the American Chemical Society, the NISE Network has assembled a set of engaging, hands-on experiences designed to stimulate interest, sense of relevance, and feelings of self-efficacy about chemistry among public audiences.
The NISE Network is a community of informal educators and scientists dedicated to supporting learning about science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) across the United States.
EKSC will hold a “Let’s Explore Chemistry” event sometime in the late Fall, and these kits will also be used for classroom lessons and for future camps.
