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.
