Hands-On, Minds-On! has been EdVenture's signature professional development experience for classroom teachers since 2006. Designed to strengthen teachers' confidence about science and mathematics and cultivate their students’ curiosity, the institutes and workshops have helped strengthen teachers' understanding of the curriculum integration and hands-on learning.
EdVenture continues to support great professional development opportunities for our state's teachers. Some upcoming programs include opportunities in marine science education.
