Space Science Teacher Professional Development

Join OMSI staff in exploring some of the best classroom activities about space science! OMSI is hosting a regional teacher workshop in Ashland on Friday, August 25, 2017. The free professional development workshop will run from 5:30pm to 8:30pm at ScienceWorks museum and a complementary public Star Party will run from 8:30pm-10:30pm at TBD location. An OMSI educator will present an array of well-tested, simple classroom activities related to the Sun, Moon, planets, and cultural astronomy. There will be time to try out the activities, and write-ups will be available in both paper and digital format. We’ll also discuss facilitation tips and tricks. Stay for dinner (provided) and join us for an outdoor Star Party in the evening as we look through telescopes at stars and planets.
