Mostly On-line Course: Inspiring Wonder - Using the 8 Science and Engineering Principles

Inspiring Wonder: Using the 8 Science and Engineering Principles

DESCRIPTION: 

Come learn how you can use the NGSS Science and Engineering Practices to transform your classroom from one in which students learn about science into one in which they figure out science. Increase your students' engagement and build their science skills all while stimulating curiosity and inspiring wonder. 

This workshop series is designed to be as flexible as possible in order to provide educators who are physically or otherwise separated from our museum with the opportunity to collaborate with peers all over the state and access the Denver Museum of Nature and Science’s training and teacher resources 

Anyone who wants to attend this series of workshops is most welcome but this professional development is intended for underserved teachers in our larger community.
