Is your school or district seeking professional development for a group of teachers? 

Start a conversation with Academy staff to see if we could support your K-12 educators in 2019.


How Do We Support Teachers?

Our team can customize a professional learning sequence based on the goals of your school or district. We can host teachers here in our world-class museum, or travel to nearby school sites. We are open to partnerships that include:

  • Delivering PD experiences for half-day, one-day, or multi-day sessions
  • Building the capacity of teacher leaders within and across school sites
  • Coaching teachers one-on-one in the classroom
  • Coaching groups of teachers at school sites
  • Facilitating planning days for groups of teachers

We can deliver one-day sessions or multi-day series focused on any of the following themes:

  • NGSS: Introductory Workshop
  • NGSS: Intermediate Workshops
  • Making the Most of Science Notebooks
  • Levels of Inquiry/Student Investigations
  • Hands On/Minds On: Activity Before Content
  • Exploring Phenomena: Using Science to Figure Things Out
  • Science Discourse for the NGSS classroom
  • ...and more!

Start a conversation with us!

Our ability to take on fee-for-service requests depends on the time of year and the capacity of our staff. The earlier you start a conversation with us, the more likely we can work your group into our calendar!

Update! Our PD team's calendar is currently filled to capacity for the 2018-2019 school year. We welcome you to contact us via the link below if you would like to be added to the waitlist for this year, or to begin a conversation about the 2019-2020 school year. Thank you!
