NYBG’s Professional Learning Institutes for Teachers provide educators the tools and training they need to enhance their students’ understanding of ecology, plant science, and the world around them. These programs provide a six-day immersion in which participants learn how to make teaching fun through field-tested, hands-on, inquiry-based activities that focus on STEM education. Participants may earn “P” in-service credits* from the New York City Department of Education.
*”P” in-service credits from the New York City Department of Education are available for all Institutes. Additional fees and requirements apply for P-credit courses.
