Empower Teachers: Institute for Quality Science Teaching
Effective classroom teaching is critical to helping children develop the essential thinking skills they need to weigh evidence, solve problems, balance risks and rewards, and make sense of their environment. The Museum's new Institute for Quality Science Teaching helps educators teach science with greater passion and confidence. Teachers who are new to science—and those who are more seasoned—gain inspiration and new skills.
- Year-long professional development workshops provide an in-depth, hands-on exploration of science topics and give teachers all the supplies they need to replicate activities in the classroom.
- Summer workshops provide all the skill-building and enthusiasm of our year-long workshops but in a shorter period of time.
- Master's-level coursework in partnership with accredited universities provides more experienced middle- and high- school teachers the opportunity to specialize in teaching a specific area of science.
- A teacher-in-residence program will allow a teacher to spend a year at the Museum developing programming, connecting with teachers and sharing their knowledge.
Give a gift today to inspire the inventors, innovators and scientists of tomorrow.
