Professional Development for Teachers!
The Museum encourages learning for all ages! As an approved Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE) Sponsor, we’re happy to offer professional development for educators in our region. These sessions will demonstrate student engagement through project-based learning and seek to enhance your professional learning all while aligning with New York State and Next Generation Science Standards.
If you would like to see what school group programs we offer, or preview a planetarium show, or just take a look around, do not hesitate to ask! Teacher screenings and sneak peeks are free here at the Cradle. You can even have your staff come for a day of Professional Development where we will create a schedule for you to sample a little bit of everything.
Reservations are required. Please call Education Coordinator, Kerri Mackay at (516) 572-4008 for more information or use the contact form below.
