Professional Development

Professional Development

Our professional development workshops 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!

June 21, 2021 – How Does Your Garden Grow?

Using the museum’s Literacy Garden as a backdrop, teachers will experience an outdoor classroom and learn methods to bring the outdoors into their classroom. It will provide adaptable, cross-curricular and inquiry-based activities for teaching students about nature and conservation. Lessons will use science, literacy and mathematics to inspire a student’s imagination and utilize both creativity and critical thinking skills.
