Workshops and events will expand GulfQuests service to area schools.
Educators will be invited to open-house evenings throughout the school year to learn about current and upcoming exhibits and programs. These events will offer teachers the opportunity to network with colleagues and enjoy GulfQuest student-free!
In addition, teachers are encouraged to obtain an educator pass and visit GulfQuest on their own prior to their field trip. Teachers can explore GulfQuest for free just by showing their school identification card at Visitors Services to receive their pass.
GulfQuest will offer educator workshops featuring maritime experts, scientists and historians. These workshops will be designed to support the teachers curriculum. Workshops will be offered after school, on weekends and during the summer. Teachers will have the opportunity to earn staff development points from these workshops.
