Professional Development for Educators

Teachers are at the frontline of education, and it is essential to provide resources and support that will help create a classroom environment that is dynamic and engaging. The Science Outreach Program at The Rockefeller University would like to bridge the gap between scientists and science educators in the NYC area by offering a variety of professional development workshops and networking opportunities. 

Summer Mini-Courses for Science Educators

The goal of the RU Science Outreach mini-course series, which are 2 day training sessions held during the summer, is to provide teachers with the materials and support needed to teach an engaging and dynamic science lesson for middle school and high school students.  Each mini-course will have a scientific theme (neuroscience, microbiology, genetics, etc.), and will always include core components on science literacy and critical thinking.
