Educator Workshops

Teachers at the Paleo Puppetry Educator Workshop work on creating their puppets at La Brea Tar Pits

Our workshops for educators build connections between your classroom curriculum and our museums' collections and exhibitions.

From helping you explore nature and science with your students, to forming connections with natural history through art, we’ve got you covered! Our professional development opportunities cover various topics surrounding museum content and are designed with adult learners in mind. We use these programs to model facilitation techniques and programmatic practice by educators at our museums, introduce creative and compelling resources, and experience the latest discoveries with our Research and Collections staff! 

what are Educator Workshops?

Take a deep dive into one area of museum content! Educator workshops are in-person events that typically last about three hours on a Saturday morning and are offered every other month. Hear from an expert, explore Museum spaces, discuss practical strategies for introducing content in your classroom, and receive related resources. Registration for these programs is released two weeks prior to the event date. To learn more about how we frame our professional development workshops, check out our Professional Learning Values & Principles.
