Notice: the ICE Office will be closed through Monday, July 13th.

Due to UW-Madison campus access restrictions the ICE office will remain closed through July 13. The ICE Online Store will reopen on July 13 but only for limited service because of the restricted access to our facilities. Beginning July 13 ICE will process and ship SMALL orders once a week. We will aim for a processing time of 5-10 business days from receipt of order to shipping, operating within the constraints of very limited access. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through a partial re-opening. If you have questions, please contact us by email at iceorders@chem.wisc.edu. We will try to respond within 48 hours.

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.

ICE 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.
