Event Details

The Exploratorium Teacher Institute will host and lead a series of day-long teacher conferences at the new Exploratorium focused on helping Bay Area middle and high school science teachers effectively teach the three dimensions of the NGSS (New Generation Science Standards).  With multiple workshops offered, you can select a class that will focus on how to teach students how to develop and use models; another will focus on the cross-cutting theme of energy and matter; a third will be to engage the participants in learning more about engineering and design thinking.  The plan is for one conference per semester.  

The selection of conferences will take over all 13 of the Exploratorium classrooms and the Forum (200 seat theater) for a series of workshops, formal lectures, science content, and a panel discussion focusing on a variety of subjects relating to the new teaching standards.

Alumni teacher-leaders trained by the Exploratorium Teacher Institute will help lead the numerous workshop sessions held at these conferences alongside TI scientists and education faculty.  Tables where local science education resource agencies can exhibit their resources will also be on the museum floor during the confernce.  At the end of the conference day, there will be an evening social event held at the Exploratorium where participants can informally network and exchange ideas with each other and experts.
