Seminars on Science is the American Museum of Natural History's online education program. Since 2000, Seminars on Science has engaged thousands of people (mostly educators) around the country in cutting-edge research and provided them with powerful classroom resources. Independent evaluation shows that educators come away from Seminars on Science courses with a deeper understanding of science content and scientific inquiry, and put our digital resources to effective use in their classrooms. They also prefer Seminars on Science to locally available professional development programs.
