The Blair Center for Professional Development at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History is committed to providing educators with hands-on minds-on interactive opportunities that will enhance your classroom practice. The Center is the home of the Texas Center for Inquiry, the 21st Century Learning Academy and Educator Workshops.

The health and well-being of our guests, staff, and community are our top priority. In response to guidance from local, state, and federal health officials, the Museum has canceled this summer’s Teaching Science through Inquiry Institute, the 21st Learning Academies and STEM Camps for Kids. We hope you will join us for these unique, professional development opportunities in the Summer of 2021.
