Shedd Science Educator Conference

The value of this day-long conference:

  • Sample science teaching strategies that will connect your classroom to Shedd's animals, exhibits and science resources.
  • Meet other Chicago-area educators and become a part of our learning community, where you’ll find resources custom-made for your classroom. 
  • Get a full day of learning, multiple workshops and all meals (light breakfast, lunch and afternoon hors d'oeuvres). 
  • Enter a raffle in each session and during the social for the chance to win additional classroom resources.
  • Receive free parking, a Shedd swag bag of resources/giveaways and cocktails during the social.
  • Tour the Aquarium before close, get to know one of our animals and receive tickets to the optional 5:00 PM Aquatic Presentation.
