Day 1: Teacher Time at ONSC

Sunday, July 9, 9AM - 5PM

Come to Ozark Natural Science Center to immerse yourself in the natural sciences during an overnight residential education experience. See what it is like for 4th through 8th grade students to learn about science while they have classes along the trails, creek, and in our classroom.  You will experience the night hike, creek trails, bluff shelter and/or wishing rock while you engage in open-ended, hands-on learning and explore nature while engaging in NGSS-based lessons. Includes 6 hours of professional development.

This is an experience that students never forget. You will learn why teachers keep bringing students back, year after year.  We would love to show you what we do and why we love sharing natural science with your students!
