The Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network (NISE Net) is a US based community that links researchers working on nanoscale sciences and engineering with informal science educators in order to foster public awareness, engagement, and a better understanding of nanoscale science, engineering and technology. Even if the materials available are mostly aimed at informal education, the activities and programs can easily be adapted for formal educational use as well. 

Through its web portal NISE Network offers a wide range of free resources for educators including exhibits, activities and programmes, forums, media and other tools to engage with the public. These are available in different formats, from hands-on experiments and videos to theatre and games, and are always accompanied by extensive background information, as well as a detailed description on how the activity should be developed.
