Are you teaching a new Smithsonian Science for the Classroom unit this year?

Or would you like a chance to learn more about them? We have two professional learning opportunities this summer to help you learn more.

Introduction to Smithsonian Science for the Classroom

Join us for a one day workshop, Aug. 14th with Dr. Amy D'Amico from the Smithsonian Science Education Center.

Einstein Training Sessions


2019 Announcement Coming Soon!

What if we looked at professional development differently?  Rather than seeing it as something you have to do, what about reframing it as something you want to do?  These very questions are at the heart of some of the changes we are implementing at the Einstein Project.

Our professional development will feature sessions that are aimed at helping teachers fine-tune their knowledge on how to use formative and summative assessments to measure student learning, getting a true understanding of Wisconsin Standards for Science based on NGSS, and makerspace workshops.

So if you’re feeling the “itch” for summer to arrive, don’t just start counting down the days left of the school year.  Make a decision to continue growing as a professional and/or challenge yourself to learn something new that will make you a rock star in the classroom.  Start by making plans to attend the Einstein Project’s Summer Academy.

Workshops

Introduction to Smithsonian Science for the Classroom

8/14/2019 - 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM
Dr. Amy D'Amico, from the Smithsonian Science Education Center, will introduce teachers to their newest curriculum line. The day will begin with a look at how their development team intentionally built the unit modules for NGSS. Over the day we will get our hands dirty doing lessons from across the grade levels to understand how assessment, literacy, and inquiry were woven into the lessons to support student sense-making as they investigate phenomena or design solutions to engineering problems.
