As one of the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum’s longest running educator programs, the Science Teaching Network (STN) aims to create a collaborative learning environment in which teachers work together to learn best practices in science education and implement an inquiry-based science curriculum. STN will provide participating teachers with a NGSS-aligned phenomena-driven curriculum.

STN is FREE to teams of CPS teachers of grades 1 through 4 from underserved schools, thanks to the generous support from the Polk Bros. Foundation and The Crown Family. Teams of two or more teachers from the same CPS school are REQUIRED for acceptance into the STN 2016 program. Each individual teacher from the team will need to submit his/her own application.
