Professional Development

Teachers New to Needham

New NPS teachers meet Science Center staffers, take a guided tour of our facilities, and learn about Science Center offerings. They learn how to request equipment and book programs. They receive grade level science content, documents, and information. They meet the wonderful live animal collection that can visit their classrooms.

Grade Level Workshops
Teacher in-service workshops bring grade level staff together at the Science Center. Teachers work collaboratively with hands-on materials to learn content, inquiry-based instructional practices, and more. Grade-level workshops give teachers the background information they need to teach the science curriculum appropriate to their grade level.

NPS staff can contact the Science Center for a personal coaching session. The Science Center staff will work with you to develop a strategy to help you feel comfortable using science materials, tools, and teaching methods. Model lessons, classroom coaching, and co-teachng opportunities are also available.

Curriculum Support
NPS staff members can drop by the Science Center during regular operating hours to look at materials and plan curriculum. Private consultation with a Science Center staff member are available by appointment.
