Educator Night Out

Mix and mingle with fellow educators and receive AR Department of Education credit at our Educator Night Out events!  Educator Night Out features opportunities for educators to explore the Amazeum, connect with colleagues, and discover incredible ways to use the Amazeum in your classroom. Local educators will partner with the Amazeum team to lead sessions on how connecting the Amazeum with your classroom lights a passion for STEAM in students. An evening at the Amazeum wouldn't be complete without time to be a big kid, so come ready to play in the exhibit hall. 

School teachers, administrative staff, and homeschool educators are all welcome to attend this free event. You don't want to miss this incredible night out filled with practical ideas, giveaways, and delicious food and drink! Based upon popular demand, we are hosting two Educator Night Out events. New sessions will be explored during each Educator Night Out so plan to attend both events! 

Advanced registration is required. Complimentary admission.
