The National Institute for Science Education was created and funded by the National Science Foundation for five years from 1996-2001. Additional support was provided by the Helen Bader Foundation, the ExxonMobil Foundation, the Joyce Foundation, the Spencer Foundation, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison Graduate School. The NISE Web site contains information on all NISE projects over the five year grant period and includes copies of publications, contacts, and links to related Web sites. While numerous programs including the Systemic Reform project, the Secondary Teacher Education Project, The Why Files, and several College Level One-related projects are ongoing, the information on this site will not be updated after June 30, 2001.
