Supporting Educators

To support students, we have to support their educators.

We provide educators with professional development, networking opportunities, and other resources to help teachers create hands-on science experiences for students.

Our educator support team is committed to:

  • Creating Regional Teacher Communities to connect rural teachers.
  • Producing curriculum resources and creating authentic science experiences for teachers to lead their classrooms.
  • Hosting professional development workshops for educators to learn, grow, and connect.
