STEM PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

We're here for you...

Our amazing professional development workshops provide fresh ideas for hands-on, low-cost lessons that help you teach standards-based science in a truly engaging way. Participants receive a Certificate of Completion at the conclusion of the workshop that may be used as a professional development credit at the school system’s discretion.

...or there for you!

We’re happy to provide professional development workshops at the location of your choosing and will work with you to develop programming tailored to your specific curriculum needs. Workshops are limited to 30 participants per session.
