Customizable Workshops Built for Your Team

A Results-Driven Training Method

Discovery educators are experts in using informal education to enhance classroom experiences. All Discovery programs are designed to support Next Generation Science Standard-aligned learning, with emphasis on skills, practices, and ways of thinking, as well as real-world problems and career pathways.


Flexible for Your Team

Discovery offers full or half day options. Programs can be conducted at your site or at Discovery. Options available for all group sizes.

Sample Workshops

Make It Immersive: Building Authentic Context for STEAM Learning 

Teachers will participate in Discovery's Great Rocket Challenge as students, then reflect on how the lesson could be done in their own classrooms. Work through challenges in utilizing the NGSS in your lessons and collaborate to create a new project-based unit framed in authentic, real-world context.

STEM Education for Non-STEM Educators 

Experience Discovery's facilities and find out more about our programs. Experience a live planetarium show and learn about resources in astronomy for your classroom. Participate in station-based learning to discover resources and materials for use in your class while you build your own STEM identity to become a STEM champion for your school.

I would prefer to have more PD days like this one.  This was by far the most beneficial PD day I have had so far at [my school].

I would like more days like this morning with [Discovery]. I felt refreshed and excited to teach again.

The activities at the Discovery Museum reinvigorated my love of science.
