 Atomic Education

The National Atomic Museum provides several ways to take advantage of our professional development opportunities which are designed to provide educators at all levels a chance to deepen content knowledge and strengthen pedagogy in science and technology. Our hands-on, inquiry-based workshops address state and national learning standards, and allow you to work at your own pace.  We offer workshops locally and through our outreach program to the southern part of New Mexico. Book a workshop at the National Atomic Museum or have our educators come to you for an In-Service Day or summer workshop.

Please visit our reservations page to submit a request for any of the following workshops.

CPS�The Formalization of The Museum Educational Experience
(on-site at museum)
Classroom Performance System is an interactive learning environment where the teacher sets up a lesson in the CPS software, hooks a data projector to the computer, and students participate in the lesson through the use of remote controlled keypads. CPS allows museum educators to provide teachers a more formalized educational experience. Let our education staff teach you how to use CPS to create a Learning Adventures which incorporates authentic assessment.
