Professional Development

At the Mississippi Children’s Museum, we believe that learning is serious fun!

At the Mississippi Children’s Museum (MCM), we believe that learning is serious fun. Our professional development workshops are innovative and interactive. They provide early childhood and elementary educators with inspirational, engaging activities to take back to their classrooms. Educators explore the museum during professional development just as their students would on a field trip to make connections between classroom lessons and real-world concepts!

March 15, 2021 – Making a Makerspace in your Classroom

Making a Makerspace in your Classroom is a hands-on workshop that will address how teachers can promote inquiry-based learning by proving a makerspace in their classroom. We will explore guidelines for making a makerspace and how to create one on a limited budget. Educators will also go through a makerspace activity using the design cycle and prompt cards.
