Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History
Professional Development
An important part of the mission of the Smithsonian — the increase and diffusion of knowledge — is to provide professional development experiences for teachers.
The Museum delivers high-quality professional development, including  workshops, symposia, and volunteer opportunities through its departments and with other Smithsonian museums.
As we schedule these opportunities, we'll publish details here.
