Event description
Learning Exchange: Teacher and Scientist NGSS Roundtable is a virtual professional development event for teachers leading science inquiry.

About this event

The Learning Exchange: Teacher and Scientist NGSS Roundtable is a one-day virtual professional development experience for K-12 teachers in San Diego who will be leading science inquiry within their classrooms in the upcoming academic year. The entire experience will be held via Zoom.

Join your fellow teachers to:

  • Experience inquiry as a learner and consider ways to include inquiry in your own classroom
  • Examine different approaches to hands-on learning
  • Explore Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) science and engineering practices (SEPs) through phenomena,
  • Engage in full scientific inquiry alongside UC San Diego Materials Research and Science (MRSEC) scientists in small groups

This professional development event is one of the ways that the UC San Diego MRSEC team will work with the Fleet Science Center to connect teachers with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and the expertise of MRSEC scientists.

Teacher-Scientist NGSS Roundtable Registration will be open until capacity has been reached. We anticipate being able to generate a wait-list in the event a spot becomes available.

Teacher Kits: Teachers who register will be provided materials to participate in the event activities.

Teacher Stipends: Teachers who successfully meet the criteria are eligible for a $150 stipend for their participation.

Please keep in mind that in addition to registering through Eventbrite, registration is not complete until the Fleet Science Center's Teacher Programs has received teachers' W-9 Form – available here: https://www.irs.gov/forms-pubs/about-form-w-9

W-9 Forms can be submitted via email to teacherprograms@rhfleet.org

Eligible participants will receive payment of stipend upon completion and submission of all required criteria. The Fleet Science Center will be responsible for the distribution of the stipend payments via mail.

Organizer of Learning Exchange: Teacher and Scientist NGSS Virtual Roundtable

"Realize a San Diego where everyone is connected to the power of science." 

--Our Mission Statement


The Fleet Science Center features more than 100 interactive science exhibits, as well as major traveling exhibitions. Visitors can touch a tornado, create colored shadows, examine the vibration of guitar strings and get their hands on a variety of intriguing scientific phenomena. 


The Fleet Science Center is also home to the world's first (and San Diego’s only) IMAX Dome Theater, presenting the biggest films on the planet. Its unique configuration wraps the audience in images and provides the illusion of being suspended in space. The Eugene Heikoff and Marilyn Jacobs Heikoff Dome Theater takes audiences from outer space to under water and every place in between, and films are generally suitable for all ages. San Diego's only Giant Dome Theater also plays host to planetarium shows, including the monthly Sky Tonight show, which is led by an astronomer and followed by outdoor telescope viewing, courtesy of the San Diego Astronomy Association.


The Fleet Science Center is open 365 days a year, starting at 10 a.m. 

We are located in beautiful Balboa Park, home to many of the city's museums, as well as beautiful gardens, intriguing architecture and picturesque fountains. Since our opening in 1973, the Fleet has been the best-attended museum in Balboa Park and a top attraction in San Diego. For more information, visit our website at www.fleetscience.org or call (619) 238-1233.


The Fleet Science Center offers:

  • More than 100 interactive exhibits
  • Studio X, where you can experiment, invent and create
  • Kid City, an exhibition just for kids ages five and under
  • Plus, Craveology Cafe and the North Star Science Store
