Teachers Present at DMNS Mind & Brain Conference

When the Denver Museum of Nature and Science was looking for presenters for their Mind & Brain Education Conference for K-12 educators, they found a wealth of expertise in Kent Denver's Science department! Teachers Kirsten Landry, Mary Fran Park and Raquel Sherman shared their techniques for leveraging cutting-edge neuroscience to help students learn. 

The conference, which was held on Saturday, October 2, invited educators from across Colorado to learn evidence-based strategies to use in their own classrooms. Some of the questions posed in the conference included:

  • How do we learn? 
  • How do we regulate emotion? 
  • What motivates and demotivates learners? 
  • The Science of Belonging & Agency 
  • The Adolescent Brain 

Ms. Landry, Ms. Park and Ms. Sherman presented the following sessions during the conference.
