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

 

Republic Service and the Clark County School District in collaboration with the Desert Research Institute’s GreenPower Program, the Alliance for Climate Education (ACE), and the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection (NDEP) are proud to host the first ever student/teacher recycling training. ACE and NDEP will lead a 5-hour student leadership workshop in conjunction with an all-day teacher training workshop led by DRI. There will be a combined student/teacher training opportunity from 12:30pm-2:30pm that day. This program is aimed for middle and high schools.
