Teacher Trainings and Workshops

As part of our mission, we recognize the importance of preparing Nevada’s educators with real world science information and expertise so they can transmit that information to their students.

DRI’s Science Alive program hosts professional development teacher trainings throughout the year in both Northern and Southern Nevada, and in our rural communities. We pride ourselves on offering a diverse set of topics and experiences at each training. All of DRI’s trainings are free and educators who attend our trainings are eligible for in-service education credits offered through the Nevada State Department of Education.  Our trainings include hands-on activities, exciting keynote presentations, unique field trip experiences, and amazing resources.

Past topics for our trainings include: Astrobiology, gardening, engineering and innovation, recycling, water conservation, energy and energy efficiency, exploring NGSS, and our annual STEAM focused trainings.

Should you have any questions about our trainings please contact our Community Relations and Professional Development Administrator Craig.Rosen@dri.edu

We are excited to be hosting our sixth annual teacher training in Reno for a full day of instructional presentations that will provide you with worthwhile information. You’ll hear from NV Energy and some of DRI’s very own environmental researchers. New and engaging hands-on activities will be taught by fellow teachers, community partners and members of the GreenPower team. During our community fair, you’ll have an opportunity to meet with organizations that support our mission by offering valuable resources to educators throughout Nevada. As always, this training is offered free of charge.
