Educator Events

Foster your students' learning and your own in our variety of workshops and events.

EMP offers a variety of valuable events that support the efforts of local educators, including biannual Teacher Professional Development Days, Homeschool Days, and music and literary student competitions such as Write Out of This World.

Professional Development Day

Power of the Arts: STEM and Project-Based Learning

This fall we have seven full-day hands-on, arts-rich, skill-based workshops designed especially for educators that address a broad spectrum of student (and teacher) learning styles and dive deep into media arts and technology. Elementary and MS/HS learning targets addressed in each workshop.

  • October 24, 2015; EMP Museum; 8:00am–4:00pm
  • $50 (includes seven Washington State clock hours)

Homeschool Days

EMP offers homeschooled students and their families a unique opportunity to participate in thematic hands-on experiences centered on the museum’s exhibits and content. Each Homeschool Day will feature a different student-centered workshop led by a professional teaching artist, a guided gallery experience, and free time to explore our exciting and interactive exhibits.
