About us

CAISE works in cooperation with the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) Advancing Informal STEM Learning (AISL) program to strengthen and advance the field of professional informal STEM education (ISE) by providing resources, infrastructure, and connectivity for project leaders, researchers, practitioners, and evaluators, as well as natural, physical, and social scientists. The sectors that we serve and support include those working in: media (TV, radio, and film); science centers and museums; zoos and aquaria; botanical gardens and nature centers; science festivals and events; cyberlearning 
and gaming; youth, community, and out-of-school-time programs; and in a variety of engagement activities conducted by scientists and their education and outreach staffs.

The CAISE office is located in Washington, D.C. and is housed under the Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC).
