About Us

Communicating Science—that's what ICE is all about. We are a national center for science educators to develop and disseminate ideas. Our efforts are evident in kits and publications, in programs for students and for teachers, and in research in chemical education. Since its founding in 1983, ICE has led the drive to help teachers revitalize science in schools throughout the United States. From "approachable" science for K–3 teachers (Super Science Connections) through nanoscale exhibits for the public, ICE has something for you.

ICE has many nanoscience-based materials because we served as the Education and Outreach arm for NSEC, the University of Wisconsin–Madison Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center (NSEC), which was one of 16 centers funded through the National Nanotechnology Initiative. The goal of the NSEC program was to build infrastructure for nanotechnology research and education across the country.
