Professional Development

Orlando Science Center collaborates with educators to help tomorrow’s scientists, technicians, and innovators develop the problem-solving, critical thinking, and teamwork skills they need to succeed in school and beyond. 

Educators can look to us for additional training, resources, and inspiration to make science come alive in their classrooms. As life becomes even more technologically driven and competitive, educators are going to need to be equipped with the curriculum, resources and understanding to guide their students into the future.

Our extensive professional development programs include a wide range of offerings from original curriculum to resources from national partners that help create a foundation for stronger, more confident educators to guide their students into the future.
