To address the urgent need for flexibility in science teaching, Nature Museum educators are supporting teachers with both professional development and remote-ready curriculum to use with your students in your remote or hybrid learning plan.
Through Remote Science on the Go, engage all students with real-world topics through multiple access points to locally relevant phenomena!
For 30 years, our experienced education staff has been working side-by-side with teachers and their students throughout Chicago.
Registration is now open for Remote Science on the Go for Quarters 1 and 2 of the 2020-21 school year.
