Teacher Programs

The Montana Learning Center provides science content and teaching strategies to enhance and expand your professional growth. Programs offered give science teachers from throughout Montana and the region a unique opportunity to collaborate with other science leaders and their peers in a beautiful lakeside setting.

Continued Education

At the MLC, teachers learn how to better engage students interested in science. Programs rely on private donations and vary from year-to-year.

This fall we are offering online Remote Telescope Teacher Training!

The Montana Space Grant Consortium, a component of NASA’s National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program, has awarded the Montana Learning Center at Canyon Ferry Lake a grant to fund the Learning Center’s development and presentation of two new online teacher training courses in collaboration with Montana State University’s National Teacher Enhancement Network. The courses will teach Montana middle and high school educators how to use and do research with a robotic telescope, which will allow them and their students to contribute to publishable research.

“Let me add in my THANKS! You are a fantastic group to work with. You folks are “working with” thousands of students over the course of your career, and I feel our youth are in very good hands. Your professionalism is wonderful, and your attitudes are amazing.”

- MT Science Teacher
