This workshop showcases successful activities you can bring back to your classroom and offers unique opportunities to connect with live animals at the Zoo.  Excitement about animals inspires kids to learn, so the Zoo is a great place to offer lessons in STEM subjects! This workshop, which focuses on topics that include biomimicry, zoo careers, and technology as a tool for conservation will show you how the Zoo’s education programs can be used to make classroom concepts memorable and fun. The workshop includes:

  • 8 hours of training and hands-on experience with Zoo staff
  • One FREE program at the Zoo or in your classroom during the 2016-2017 school year
  • Breakfast, lunch, and snacks
