Professional Development Days

Spend the day at Liberty Science Center! In collaboration with ExxonMobil Teacher Workshops, LSC hosts full days of professional development experiences for teachers to support their classrooms and school science education programs. Teachers also receive access to the Science Center's general admission exhibits.

Workshops are $125 per participant and run from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm. Reservations are required for all participants. To make a reservation or for more information, call 201.253.1290 or email us at

Teachers can register individually for Professional Development Days. If you're interested in professional development exercises as a group, please explore our Professional Development Workshops.
