The Amazeum offers private workshops for STEAM Investigations. Full descriptions are available below. Each private workshop is 2 hours long with the date determined in collaboration between school and Amazeum. Private workshops are best when held at Amazeum due to the experience and access to resources/tools. However, workshops can be held at your school site. Workshops are ADE-approved for professional development credit. Professional Development workshops held in-person have new processes and procedures to maintain a healthy and safe environment. More information provided during registration.
