TEACHER PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
Loveland Living Planet Aquarium’s Teacher Resource Program visits every school district in Utah on a three-year rotation. Workshops are free for public and charter school teachers. Funding for these workshops comes from the Utah State Legislature’s Informal Science Education Enhancement (iSEE) grant and the Education Alliance Partnership in association with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). All workshops are free and include materials, lesson plans, and Utah State Board of Education relicensure points.
Occasionally, we have enough resources to offer additional workshops. You may request a workshop below.
For more information about TRP workshops please contact Kristen Smith, Special Programs Coordinator at (801) 355-FISH (3474) ext. 256 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
