Teacher Programs

Teacher Trainings

Teacher trainings support educators in deepening their science content knowledge, conducting inquiry classroom activities and planning successful school group visits. Teachers interact with scientists and learn how to connect exhibit content to classroom curriculum. Activities and resources are connected to the National Geographic science standards and Mathematics Florida Standards for grades K-5. Teachers earn in-service points upon completion.

A T. rex Named Sue
Feb. 4, 2015 | 1:30 - 4:30 p.m.

Tyrannosaurus rex has long commanded respect and sparked curiosity in the mind of the public, and Sue is the most famous T. rex of all. At 42 feet long and 12 feet tall at the hips, her skeleton inspires as much awe today as she did 67 million years ago. In the exhibit A T. rex Named Sue, explore how this remarkable creature interacted with its world and what we can learn from studying its bones. Revel in the sheer size of a fully articulated, life-sized skeleton cast. Look at a cast of Sue’s skull and experience her movement, vision and sense of smell for yourself. Touch casts of her bones and diagnose pathologies that left their mark in Sue’s leg, jaw and tail.
