The NISE Network community within the United States is organized around four "Regional Hubs" based on geographic proximity. Regional hubs facilitate partner interaction in the Network, help museum educators connect with scientists and each other, and provide support to institutions in their region. To get more involved with the Network, find your region on the map, and contact your Regional Hub Leader.
