Teacher Workshops

Teachers can take advantage of the many workshops and in-service opportunities available through the Tennessee Aquarium. Many of these classes can be hosted at the Aquarium or at your school. Additionally, classes can be tailored to fit your school in-service schedule.


There are no instructional fees for the following workshops/in-services. Depending on your state, there may be a materials charge. A transportation fee may also be assessed.  Workshops are scheduled periodically by the Aquarium, but we can schedule a workshop just for your group with a minimum of 10 participants. Homeschool and scout groups are also welcome to schedule a workshop.  Please email Carrie Howell Shaw at chs@tnaqua.org for more information.
