Professional Development Opportunities

The Teacher Innovator Institute brings together middle school STEAM teachers for two weeks each summer.

Check out the Museum’s YouTube playlist made just for teachers, where you’ll find activity ideas and programs featuring teachers.

Bring professional development into your school with virtual sessions on a variety of topics, including Difficult Conversations in STEM and Teaching With Objects. Reserve through the Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration or email us at

Join us for three live professional development sessions during the 2021-2022 school year. All sessions will be presented virtually, with the potential for in-person participation in January and March if safety permits. Sessions are free and teachers may participate in any or all sessions.
