Professional Development for Educators

Opportunities to Increase Professional Knowledge

Student 2 Science offers teachers access to professional development (PD) opportunities to increase their knowledge about STEM careers.

  • Educators may earn up to 6 hours of professional development (PD) credit for each ISAAC session their student classes participate in. This builds the teacher’s capacity to teach lab sciences.
  • Teachers who participate in V-Lab may earn job-embedded PD and earn 1 hour of PD for each unique V-Lab experiment. Before each V-Lab session, teachers receive instructional resources including lesson plans and “How-to” videos for every experiment.

All content is aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards.
