Teacher Resources for Alabama Science Education

Like you, McWane Science Center strives to make science exciting and inspire exploration in each of the young minds that enter our doors. That’s why we do everything we can to partner with our state’s educators and share ideas. Explore our resources below for professional development workshops, curriculum planning, and more!

Educator Advisory Committee

Join our committee to foster collaboration and learning among teachers and advocate for our mission to spark wonder and curiosity about our world through hands-on science experiences. Members are involved in evaluating, piloting, and developing programs produced by McWane’s Education Department. Educators must be willing to serve on the Advisory Committee and meet three times per year, for a two-year term. Teachers will receive one free McWane on the Move classroom program and a one-year family membership to McWane Science Center.

The Educator Advisory Committee is open to all classroom teachers, PreK to 12th grade, college professors, informal educators with teaching experience, and community representatives working directly with children ages 0-18.

Education Guide

We’ve compiled an up-to-date guide on all the educational resources available at McWane Science Center. Use this guide to help you plan your next field trip and become our partner in changing lives through science and wonder.
