Professional Development

Educators have a lot to teach in a very short time.  They don't have time for activities or material that don't match their local, state, or national standards.  That's why our Professional Development is based on the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)!

Enhance your ability to teach energy, one of the Next Generation Science Standard's crosscutting concepts, by learning content from energy experts, visiting energy production and research facilities, and developing your inquiry and engineering design/problem solving teaching skills with classroom activities.   Optional 3 hours of graduate credit in either Science Education or Technology.  Click here for more information.
