We offer virtual professional learning programs such as Going Remote with Inquiry-Based Learning and Making Place-Based Learning Phenomenal that can be customized to meet your school district’s specific needs.

Our remote programs:

  • model engaging and effective remote science and engineering instruction
  • align with the NGSS and the MA 2016 STE Framework
  • foster instruction and assessment using the Science and Engineering Practices
  • may be tailored to address the specific needs of your school or district
  • include science content as well as pedagogy
