Exploritorium Teacher Institute Leadership Program
The Exploratorium Leadership Program is a two-year training and support program for alumni of the Teacher Institute who take on the responsibilities of mentoring and coaching novice science teachers in the Exploratorium Beginning Teacher Program.

These veterans can choose to work as mentors or coaches. Another equally important objective of the program is to provide  experienced alumni with opportunities to develop their own leadership skills.
