Professional development for teachers

SRP wants to empower educators to create classrooms where everyone can succeed. That's why we provide complimentary teacher training to help inspire students on how water and power shape the world around us.

3-Dimensional Science Learning with Brett Moulding

SRP and the Arizona Department of Education are thrilled to announce a very special professional development opportunity. Brett Moulding, one of the writers of A Framework for K-12 Science Education  and a nationally recognized science educator, will be offering two sessions of professional development on 3 Dimensional Science Learning. These are two day sessions offered virtually on consecutive Saturdays. Session One will be for teachers in grades 3-5 and offered March 20th and 27th. Session two will be focused on K-2 teachers and offered April 10th and 17th. Space is limited.
