Attend a Rhode Island PLT training and receive:

  • High-quality professional development for both formal and non-formal educators;
  • Flexible, investigation-based activities–rich with STEM, language arts, and social studies–that meet state standards, CCSS, and NGSS;
  • Hands-on lessons for young children that integrate investigations of nature with art, literature, math, music, and movement;
  • PLT’s activity guide with dozens and dozens of multi-disciplinary activities;
  • Tips to safely take young children outdoors and bring nature into your classroom;
  • Invitation into a diverse and supportive professional network.

Here’s what some of our past PLT participants had to say about their experience:

“Excellent in every way. I plan to start using activities the first day of school to engage students in learning science and set the tone (and excitement level) for the whole school year!”

“This was by far one of the best trainings that I have been to! I have taken away so much more than any of the many trainings I have attended.”

“A great workshop is one you take away a plan to implement and this met and exceeded my expectations.”

“I LOVED IT! Thank you so much.”
