Are you an educator with science in your curriculum? You’ll want to learn about our upcoming professional development series, open to educators from all grade levels. During our four-day series starting in October, experts will introduce you to the new science standards and explain how they have been designed and organized across disciplines and grades to provide all students an internationally bench marked science education. A key focus of the seminar will be on instructional shifts in relation to the new standards, as well as an increased understanding of the scientific and engineering practices and their impact in the classroom.
What are the new science standards and how do they impact teaching and learning?
After we introduce the Next Generation Science Standards, we will deepen our understanding and learning with focused modules on creating an effective science environment, conceptual understanding and science unit design, science literacy, plus more.
Session dates are October 15, December 14, January 21 and February 22. To learn more, visit our website.

The EducationPlus Learning Department is proud to support the ARCHS Spring Institute for Early Childhood & Youth Development Professionals. ARCHS is hosting a full day of professional learning opportunities with a fantastic lineup of leading edge STEAM experts from across the St. Louis region.
ARCHS hopes educators will take advantage of the expertise from EducationPlus, Box Cars & One Eyed Jacks, Gateway Greening, The Magic House, Quirkles, St. Louis Science Center, University of Missouri 4-H Robotics, and more on this full day of learning.
The spring institute is designed to offer ways to learn from area educational leaders, as well as from each other with a focus on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math) from 8 am – 3:30 pm on Saturday, April 5, for just $45.
Common Core State Standards, College and Career Readiness Standards, and the Next Generation Science Standards place great emphasis on a multi-disciplinary approach that increases interconnectedness among all disciplines and engineering. “Putting the “E” in STEM: Strategies for Training Engineers In Your Modern Classroom” offers middle and high school teachers from all disciplines an introduction to essential principles of engineering, places to find resources, easily accessible tools, and basic ways to begin including engineering principals into their current curriculum. Curriculum coordinators and administrators are also encouraged to attend. Learn more from Dr. Bridgette Davis of Louisiana State University’s School of Education on April 21. Registration is available online; members pay $150 for a full day of learning.
