Welcome to the Informal Science Community

Join to search and share informal science education projects, disseminate findings and outcomes, become searchable as a potential collaborator, receive timely information from CAISE via our newsletter, and connect to our community of STEM based professionals and researchers from across the informal science education field.

Groups & Forums

Groups and Forums provide site members a space to participate in discussions, share ideas, and interact with potential collaborators.  If you are interested in starting a new Forum, or viewing an archived version of a Group Forum from our previous website, please contact us at

Knowledge Base

The Knowledge Base (formerly the ISE Evidence Wiki) is a collaboratively generated resource designed to streamline access to and share evidence about the impacts of informal STEM learning on a range of audiences in a variety of settings. Articles in the Knowledge Base are intended to be evidence-supported claims that can be referenced when developing proposals or "making the case" for a strategy or approach to funders and stakeholders, as well as to see what is known and emerging in the field.
