The Houston Museum of Natural Science is proud to present The Educator Event @HMNS, generously supported by Shell, on January 21, 2017. 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. Attendees will earn three hours of CPE credit by attending a variety of exciting, hands-on workshops, and in addition, we will have exclusive drawings for educators to win prizes provided by Shell!
