PLATO has run dozens of workshops in Seattle and around the country for teachers, parents, and other adults interested in philosophical inquiry with young people.

We run an annual in-person three-day workshop on Philosophy in Schools each June at the University of Washington.  PLATO is also offering an online summer workshop in August.

Workshops are open to teachers, graduate students, educators of all kinds, and others interested in exploring how introducing philosophy can enrich the lives of young people. Participants learn about how to introduce philosophy to young people, and engage in philosophical discussions on topics such as: “What can we know? What makes something right or wrong? Are we free? What is a mind? How do we define happiness?”

The 2022 Online Workshop will be held from Wednesday—Friday, August 24-26. The tentative schedule consists of two 2.5-hour sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, each day.
