Lineage Outreach Program Workshop

Nurture the budding paleontologists in your community while building capacity in your organization to offer new and engaging fossil-based experiences for the whole family and connecting with other educators. Through a National Science Foundation grant, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History (NMNH) and Twin Cities Public Television are offering a full-day workshop on Wednesday, July 1, 2020, just after the Smithsonian Affiliations National Conference, exclusively to Smithsonian Affiliates. The workshop will help Affiliate educators and public programming staff enhance family programming in their communities and support professional development on science content and informal learning techniques.

Applications due March 6, 2020.

Lineage activities, content, and materials are designed for use in informal learning spaces such as museums, libraries, and parks, as well as schools. The hands-on Lineage activities were designed for the public and will help advance understanding of how family co-play can support learning. This one-day workshop at NMNH will introduce Affiliate educators to the activities and equip them to access the content and materials for use in their own museums and communities.
