Professional Development

Dedicated to inspiring tomorrow’s scientists, technicians, inventors, educators and original thinkers, the Science Center collaborates with educators to help future innovators develop strong skills in problem-solving, critical thinking, and teamwork they need to succeed in school and beyond.

Educators can look to Orlando Science Center to provide them with additional training, resources and inspiration to help make science come alive in the classroom for their students.

 

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 impact the next generation.

Offerings

PreK-12 educators are invited to individually register for workshops at Orlando Science Center in which they will learn skills for leading innovative STEM education. Workshops are offered throughout the spring 2019 semester.

 

Orlando Science Center is an endorsed site to provide Engineering is Elementary (EiE) Professional Development Workshops to the southeast. Our certified trainers can travel to any school in the state of Florida.

Intensive hands-on training shows educators first-hand how to embed this curriculum into the classroom and provides the necessary support for success. Each of the trainings will cover one unit of EIE curriculum that the educators will subsequently be able to implement in their own classroom.

Orlando Science Center is proud to be one of Code.org’s Regional Partner organizations. This partnership establishes Orlando Science Center as a regional hub of Code.org’s professional learning community.

The Science Center offers a variety of professional development workshops that will provide local educators with the resources necessary to foster a strong understanding and appreciation for computer science in all students.
