Professional Development

Our professional development offerings are designed and taught by the same people who have developed the most innovative science and math curricula and methods available today.

Professional Development for Science and Mathematics Education

We offer a variety of outstanding inquiry-based science and mathematics professional development options that exemplify sound teaching strategies and are researched to address the needs of all learners. We connect with over 20,000 teachers annually—regionally, nationally, and even internationally through our collaborations with our partner sites, publishers, school districts from NYC to LA, and partners as distant as Japan and Jordan.

Early Childhood Education

Learn effective strategies for teaching science to young learners in professional development workshops led and developed by experienced early childhood specialists. Workshops align with both California Preschool Learning Foundations in Science and Next Generation Science Standards.

K–12 Science

Get the skills and the tools to meet today’s most compelling needs in science education. You’ll learn directly from leaders in the field. Many of our programs combine nationally recognized curriculum materials with implementation strategies, plus site-based follow-up support for schools and districts.

Mathematics

Being proficient in mathematics means integrating conceptual understanding, procedural fluency, strategic competence, and adaptive reasoning. Our programs provide mathematics curriculum support from the Kindergarten level though college and teach methods that increase access and exposure to mathematics.

Out-of-School

Because lifelong learning occurs within a matrix of formal and informal educational environments, we also offer courses and tools to help prepare educators working outside of school: in science centers, zoos, aquariums, and afterschool programs.

Custom Programs

We will work with you to create a custom program to suit your needs and bring it directly to your school or district.

Legacy Programs

Browse through the various professional development programs we have offered in the past to see a sampling of our capabilities.

Materials for Science Educators

Download professional learning tools including adult learning sessions that can either stand on their own, or be flexibly added to existing professional development programs. These materials have been developed, tested and refined over many years with science educators from various audiences.
