February 6 - Biomimicry - Emulating Nature's Genius to Inspire Innovation for a Sustainable Future with Linda Paisley
During the summer months (June, July, and August) our For the Inquisitive Naturalist talks are family friendly- focusing on topics interesting to both parents and their children. During the Summer of 2012, our July and August talks were part of two special family-friendly Nature Nights at the Center. Nature Night activities started at 6:30pm and included live animals, crafts, nature walks, discovery room visits and themed snacks! These nature nights were well attended and brought in many new visitors. We hope to continue these next year.
Science Educator Workshops
Center Staff offer a variety of training workshops for classroom educators, home school parents, and student teachers who want to incorporate more hands-on science explorations in their classes.
Workshops are based on national as well as locally developed curricula, and each comes with a curriculum/activity guide. Participants earn four to six hours of SBEC credit.
Register online for one of our upcoming teacher workshops today.
