Applications for 2018 physical toolkits

Applications for physical Explore Science: Earth & Space 2018 toolkits are due November 1, 2017
(online applications will open on or before September 1, 2017)


NISE Network partners who received a physical 2017 Explore Science: Earth & Space toolkit are required to compete an online report by June 15, 2017.

The report takes approximately 20 minutes to complete. Please note that it is NOT possible to save your work in the SurveyGizmo online form and return for additional edits. Reports left idle too long will go blank when you progress to the next screen, so please plan to complete the online report in one session. You may want to write your responses in the Word document, save, and then cut and paste that information into the online report. Blank versions (Word and PDF) have been provided for you below to download.
