Save the Date

Northern Illinois Science Educators (NISE) is pleased to announce our eighth annual NISE Conference, "NISE 2021," will be held Monday, January 31, 2022 at the NIU Conference Center in Naperville, IL. Due to COVID restrictions we are pushing the conference into January to allow teachers to settle into a more normal school year. All K-12 science educators are encouraged to attend. Our goal is to bring science educators together to collaborate and share ideas and methods for best practices in science education. The day will be filled with more than 40 presentations and double session workshops. Topics will range from the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) to technology in the science classroom.
