Teacher Training

“Workshops boost my skills and help me build connections with other teachers. I have gained confidence in becoming the best science teacher I can be for my students. Thank you, Advancing Science!”


Teacher Workshop Image The goal of our workshops is to provide standards-based professional development designed to enhance teacher understanding of the Advancing Science laboratory content, provide instruction concerning the use of the Advancing Science equipment, and introduce teachers to real-world experiences that can be applied in the classroom to provide students relevance to the associated science concepts.

Topic-specific workshops focus on specific scientific topics such as spaceflight, rocketry, astronomy, weather, environmental science, life science, geology, animals, and plants.  Teachers are exposed to associated applicable Advancing Science laboratories and gain useful insights into the topics which can then be carried back to the classroom for immediate implementation.  Keep your eye on the Advancing Science website for upcoming workshops.  Teachers will be issued a Certificate of Attendance that may be presented to district administration as proof of professional development. 

Upcoming Workshops

Our next teacher training workshops are tentatively planned for August 14 and 15, 2023.  Registration will open in late spring.
