Art After Dark: Butterflies, Taking Science to the Backyard

An offering by Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium

This series of professional development sessions will be centered around the zoo's formal curriculum pieces. Each session will explore how you can incorporate specific lessons into your classrooms whether you teach kindergarten or high school biology. All lessons are aligned to Nebraska Career and College Readiness Standards. These lessons were designed by teachers for teachers! Art teacher Rebekah Pilypaitis of Bryan High School will join us and teach participants techniques to help students incorporate different art mediums into science, technology, engineering and math. Join us for a professional development like no other! Registration is limited so grab your sketch book and meet us at the Zoo for a wild good time! (participant will need to bring their own art supplies)

Workshops are $50/Sessions

Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo has begun the Nebraska Butterfly Conservation and Education Project. Central to this project is an opportunity for educators and students to become citizen scientists by monitoring butterflies and sharing their findings with the community. We are dedicated to inspiring youth, educators, and families to explore butterflies in their neighborhood. Through your participation, it is our goal to spark an interest, enthusiasm, and commitment to butterfly conservation. Our hope is that this curriculum will afford greater opportunities for discussions, problem solving, sharing of resources, and inquiry.
