The ICE office and Online Store will be remain closed until July 11, 2021.

Due to building construction and limited staff the ICE office will remain closed through July 11. There will be no summer Fun With Chemistry Camps this year. The ICE Online Store will reopen on July 12, but only for limited service because of the restricted access to our facilities. From July 12-30 ICE will process and ship SMALL orders once a week to domestic locations only. 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. If you have questions, please contact us by email at We will check and respond to emails twice a week during the summer. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through a partial re-opening.


The SCIENCountErs outreach program is a collaboration between ICE and the Boys and Girls Clubs (B&GC) of Dane County that was established in 2005 in collaboration with the UW–Madison Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center (NSEC). The aim of SCIENCountErs is to inspire and excite a diverse audience of future scientists and engineers. We visit both B&GC in the Madison area each week during the academic year where we present hands-on science and engineering activities to 4th through 8th grade students.

SCIENCountErs hosts their own site at with more information about the organization.

SCIENCountErs is supported by funds from the UW-Madison NSEC
