2019 Professional Development Seminar Series
MITS’ Professional Development Seminar Series is designed for staff, volunteers and other professionals from science, environmental, natural history, technology, art, history and other cultural institutions and centers in New England. Typically, each seminar is a full day, split into two sessions. The mornings are spent exploring STEM content areas with scientists and policy makers. Afternoon sessions are skill-based, focusing on turning real-life science into exciting, inquiry-based, hands-on, minds-on lessons and activities for your programs with K-12 students and teachers, or other youth programs. The seminars are designed as professional development opportunities to provide content and teaching resources for your staff as well as networking opportunities for professionals in informal education settings. Teachers, science coordinators and other formal educators are also welcome to attend these seminars.
