CityScience workshops support educators who want to make STEM more relevant and engaging for their students with hands-on, real-world explorations and experiments. Staff workshops are available for early childhood, elementary, middle school, and after-school youth development professionals looking to master STEM content and practice new STEM pedagogies.
All workshops are offered in half, full and multi-day formats to help you meet your staff development goals. Workshop pricing is determined by the number of staff participating and the duration of each workshop.
- On Site Workshops are held at your school or Extended Learning Time site. Educators are provided with the tools and materials necessary to implement STEM curriculum. Visit the Professional Development section of our catalog to learn about the content and pedagogy workshops available.
- Field Workshops are held outside in your school or site and illustrate how the natural and built environments can become laboratories for active learning. Working with your Coach, CityScience will help you select content and pedagogy workshops that fit your unique location.
- Summer and Break Week Workshops are opportunities to work with CityScience Coaches and learn how to develop lesson plans that use informal resources as catalysts for interdisciplinary learning. During these intensive workshops, educators plan and rehearse new STEM explorations with their colleagues and leave equipped with new classroom ready units. Participants in these workshops receive ongoing technical assistance to ensure educators have the support necessary to meet their expectations.
- Chancellor and Non Teaching Day Workshops are a series of low or no cost workshops in our small Midtown office. These workshops are a great way for a handful of educators to get to know more about CityScience. Participants are encouraged to begin using our Lending Library and go home with the materials to try a new STEM activity. Spots fill up fast in these workshops, click here to learn how to enroll.
All CityScience workshops programs equip teachers with the skills, resources, and confidence to lead hands-on and minds-on STEM activities. We believe that applied learning opportunities enable students to grasp science content more quickly and develop critical thinking skills that will serve them throughout their education and lives.

Mission & Vision
CityScience is committed to raising the quality of science education and supporting environmental stewardship. By using the natural and built environments as laboratories for active learning, we transform teaching to make science relevant and engaging for PreK-8 students.
We envision a world where the teachers least likely to have the experience or certificate to teach science are equipped with resources, training and support necessary to deliver inspiring, hands-on curricula that promotes critical thinking skills and sparks an interest in science for our youngest learners.
