The Bioscience Education and Outreach Program, within the Towson University Center for STEM Excellence, is committed to supporting in-service science teachers in Maryland with high-quality professional development experiences. We offer a variety of workshops that help teachers build content knowledge, increase technical skills and explore more leaner-centered, inquiry-based pedagogy.
The Maryland Loaner Lab Training workshop qualifies teachers to borrow from the Maryland Loaner Lab. We offer these 3-hour workshops monthly, or you may request a custom training (either at your school or at our facility).
