Every day, Nature Museum educators work side-by-side with teachers in Chicago-area classrooms, helping them gain more confidence and feel more comfortable in teaching science class. We know that empowered and supported teachers lead to more time spent on science and to higher quality learning for students.
Cada día, los educadores del museo también trabajan con los maestros en el área de Chicago. Los maestros estan ganando confianza y comodidad enseñando ciencias. Sabemos que los maestros apoyados conducen a más tiempo dedicado a la ciencia y a un aprendizaje de mayor calidad para los estudiantes.
Art adds a powerful dimension to interpreting nature and nature is often a powerful inspiration for many artists. We celebrate this connection every day at the Nature Museum from rotating art shows to crafting activities at our family events.
We hope you and your family are safe and healthy at home, but we know how difficult it is to be away from school, friends, and activities. That’s why we’re happy to provide you with this new email series, dedicated to a day’s worth of nature and science facts, activities, guiding questions to ask your kids, and more!
Despite the Chicago cold, we’re getting ready for a summer of fun, exploration, and learning. Every year, the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum Summer Camp welcomes dozens of campers across all of our sessions.
Every year, we give campers the opportunity to spend up to four days with us during this special Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum day camp and every year, we welcome more and more campers into this special program.
Each year we host scout groups and families for a truly unique experience—an overnight in the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum! Ever considered a “campout” quite like this?
In March 2017, two teachers from St. Malachy School got to represent our E2SP program at the National Science Teachers Association Conference. The following blog is a guest post written by them as they reflect on the experience.
