We'd like to share some STEM-focused professional development opportunities from Woodland Park Zoo.
The Zoo's programs for educators are focused on empowering educators with a strong foundation in ecological literacy, skills in inquiry-based learning and principles of field investigation. Their professional development programs provide educators with necessary knowledge, skills and resources to bring meaningful environmental and sustainability education to their students or other audiences. All program activities and materials provided are designed to support Washington state’s academic learning requirements, to address national standards for inquiry-based science learning, and to advance the zoo’s mission by inspiring and cultivating an informed community of conservation stewards
