Liberty Science Center offers professional development for educators via customizable workshops (three-hour to multi-day) designed to cover various areas of science appropriate for grades K–8 and 7–12 educators. Workshops appear to provide lessons that educators can use in their own classrooms to introduce content aligned to specific content topics in the NGSS and the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards (NJCCCS). The center also offers a variety of other technology-based programs that districts and schools can purchase, including virtual surgical centers, electronic field trips, and interactive lessons delivered over videoconferencing. Evidence is not yet provided to support the program's effectiveness.
