Professional Development Courses for Science Teachers at all Levels
  1. Bugs in the Classroom (SCI-928)
    Entomology is the study of insects, the most abundant form of animal life on earth. Many insects are easily maintained in the classroom and can thrive despite being handled and kept in captivity. Insects can be used to model many scientific principles. Additionally, you'll find a variety of potential cross-curricular activities with insects that connect science with art, math, language arts and social studies.
  2. Virtual Science Labs (SCI-929)
    The course uses a project-based approach to help students learn about and experience the use of virtual science labs suitable for use in their classroom. Using computer and Internet technology, students will develop meaningful lessons centered around virtual science labs that also meet subject matter standards requirements. Finally, participants will create a simple virtual science lab of their own design.
