The Shell Educators’ Preview is now on the same day as The Educator Event – October 4th, 2019! Houston Museum of Natural Science is excited to announce a new format for The Educator Event @HMNS! Our new and revamped Educator Event will happen Friday, October 4 from 5 to 9 p.m. It will also feature several ways to earn CPE credit from attending workshops, to taking tours and seeing films in our Giant Screen Theater and Planetarium. Educators will be able to earn one, two or three hours of CPE credit depending on which programming they attend. Come an hour early to the Shell Educators’ Preview to earn an extra hour for a total of 4 hours of CPE credit! We believe that this new format will be flexible enough for our educators and help them fulfill some of their professional credit needs for the year. This conference-style event gives educators a unique chance to learn about the educational opportunities provided by museums, educational nonprofits and local organizations in and around Houston.
