These resources compliment the exhibit experiences and align with the Connecticut State Science Framework Standards.MORE
These two-day workshops will immerse participants in our newly developed STEM units. These units have been designed to be taught through the engineering model based on the new national science standards and also align with the current science standards.
Inquiry Teaching and Learning Workshop Series
We offer professional development in inquiry-based learning and teaching by providing a series of week-long immersion workshops, as well as an annual two-day follow-up conference.
