We are excited to introduce our new Virtual Workshops

We are excited to take our professional learning virtual! You can earn continuing education credits in multiple ways while learning about a range of topics to help you plan for instruction, whether remote, in person, or somewhere in between.

Baxter Box @ Home

Looking for ways to engage your students in authentic science experiences from home?

Join the Baxter Center for a virtual workshop and receive materials and equipment to test out labs in their own home and plan with a community of educators. Training and support will be provided by Baxter Center staff.

1 CEU earned per hour spent in the program.


Science Course Meetups

Let’s get together (virtually) and plan!

We know teachers work best when they work together. We also know you don’t always have a course team to work with, so we’re providing the space and resources for teachers across the Chicago area to get together and talk about teaching this fall.

Science Course Meetup Subjects:

  • Biotech
  • Forensics / Criminology
  • Middle School Science
  • Diverse Learners in Science

1 CEU earned per hour of meeting.


Science Talks

Let’s learn about science from the experts (virtually)!

We've heard over and over from teachers that they love hearing about cutting edge research because it reinvigorates their love for scienece. To keep that passion going, once a month we will invite a scientist or educational researcher to speak with us about something from their field. A short talk will be followed with Q&A.
