Empowering Science Teachers

Professional learning that helps educators save time, build confidence and engage students.

Professional Learning is the fuel that drives educators’ confidence in actively guiding students through rigorous science investigations.

We work with educators who are implementing our Activate Learning curriculum and we also facilitate the shift to a 3-Dimensional curriculum, no matter what programs your district is utilizing. Every professional learning experience is curated to the needs of your district.

Our second-to-none team is built on a strong foundation of knowledge and experience in implementing research-based, 3-dimensional aligned curricula. We are educators, curriculum developers, implementation users, and mentors. Our goal is the success of your teachers and students.

I can't say enough about how wonderful the teacher's professional learning was over the last three days! We chose the right teachers to help with the facilitation, and Activate Learning chose the right facilitators to help mentor the teachers and co-present. Thank you, thank you, thank you! It was like all the stars lined up. I loved hearing how much the teachers loved being in the training. Most of them were not getting paid to attend the training, and they were saying the teachers that didn't come to the training are not going to be able to teach this in the fall. This group of teachers are going to be the teachers that rally for professional learning and this program.

We have recently implemented OpenSciEd Middle School Units in all of our middle school classrooms.  This past summer, as the Science Instructional Coach in Colonial, I worked alongside the Activate Professional Learning Group to implement professional learning for the units in our district and state.  In addition, I worked with many of the facilitators from Activate to provide professional learning opportunities in our district for our teachers. 

We are so thankful for the work and efforts of the Activate Professional Learning Facilitators.  I love how this group of Activate facilitators along with Tracy, the lead of the Activate PL Group, created personalized learning opportunities for the instructional coaches and teachers in this state, and specifically for our district!   The Activate group is friendly, personable, understands the workload and stresses of teachers, and adapts the professional learning to our needs. Thank you Activate for helping us along with our successful implementation of OpenSciEd Curriculum!

This was the most extensive pilot process we ever went through. In March (2019) when we concluded the pilot our decision was close. We decided to go back and pilot again to evaluate the remote learning support and Activate Learning really stepped up, delivering great professional learning support and a remote learning plan.

Thank you so much for a wonderful training this week!  The teachers really appreciated it and we were able to delve even deeper into OSE yesterday during our extended planning time.  The teacher's and I really appreciated how you were able to capture the spirit of Open Sci Ed in the workshops!
