5:30 - 8:30 pm
At the NC Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh
Are you looking for fun and engaging new ideas and curriculum-correlated STEM lesson plans? Do you want to talk one-on-one with the scientists and researchers behind the content you’re teaching? Do you plan to bring your class on a field trip to the NC Museum of Natural Sciences this year? Are you interested in learning about the wealth of resources available through your state Science Museum? If you answered yes, then the SciREN Triangle and Educator Open House at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences is the event for you!
The SciREN Triangle Networking Event and Museum Open House is an information exchange night just for educators! This special night invites scientists and teachers from the Triangle/Piedmont region to interact in a relaxed environment. The event showcases the wide array of Museum programs and opportunities for both teachers and students available both on- and offsite. Educators can preview exhibits and activities while working out the logistics of a school field trip, talk directly with museum staff about onsite programs, and find out first-hand about virtual-education classes, outreach, and professional development opportunities. Through a partnership with SciREN (Scientific Research and Education Network), educators can meet more than 50 local scientists ready to distribute curriculum-centered lessons based on their research! This is an excellent way to rejuvenate teaching methods, integrate relevant and real science to student learning, and reach out into the scientific community.
·            * Free Lilly’s Pizza and Beer (courtesy of New Belgium Brewery)!
