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 Baker City on Saturday, April 15, 2017. The free professional development workshop will run from 5pm to 8pm at the Baker County Public Library in Baker City and a complementary public Star Party will run from 8pm-10pm 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.
