Educator Open House at Lincoln Park Zoo

Learning About Lincoln Park Zoo As a Living Classroom

On October 2, 352 educators explored the zoo after-hours while learning about the educational programs and resources Lincoln Park Zoo offers.They also attended animal chats, tried out the zoo’s Observe to Learn and Creating Young Researchers iPad apps, collected free curriculum materials and visited mobile learning stations that inform visitors about wildlife and the zoo’s conservation efforts.

Thanks to everyone who attended! It was this event’s largest turnout since its debut in 2011. We look forward to collaborating with you in your science education efforts!

Educator Open House 2013 was made possible by the Bank of America Foundation.
