The Michigan Informal Science Learning Network is an organization of and for informal/non-formal science educators in Michigan zoos, museums, nature centers, 4-H and MSU Extension Educators, and others. It began when several informal educators began sharing information about the work that we do, including the various ways that we support formal science education across the state.

The group’s mission and goals have not yet been determined. This is where you come in! Join us Feb. 29 to help more clearly define our mission, set goals, and objectives to support our efforts in improving science literacy in Michigan.
