Our mission is to positively impact a child's potential in life through play-based education.
First Member Event of 2017!
The Children's Museum in Oak Lawn is hosting introductory NGSS educator professional development courses presented by University of Illinois Extension STEM Team. There are no prerequisites to these courses, but if you want to take both, it is beneficial that the NGSS practices workshop be scheduled before the engineering workshop.
These programs are based on the Next Generation Science Standards for grades K-12, so they will focus on that level. However, if you are outside that grade level or are an informal science educator, our programs also provide valuable pedagogical information and teaching strategies.
Each program is $15/person with 2 ISBE Professional Development hours given per session. Light refreshments will be provided courtesy of the Children's Museum in Oak Lawn.
Minimum class size is 10 participants; if this number is not reached, participants will be notified via email about a rescheduled date and/or the refund process.
