The Maine Physical Sciences Partnership (MainePSP)
as a Generator of New Opportunities
During the last six months, faculty members from the Maine Center for Research in STEM Education Research (RiSE Center) have received over $8 million in grants. This rapid growth in funding, spread among so many different RiSE faculty members, is linked directly to the MainePSP and, in many cases, to the new faculty members that this project has attracted and supported. Those involved with the MainePSP have sought additional funding to build upon and sustain its work. In this colloquium, Erika and Susan, with input from other RiSE Center faculty, will talk informally about these new research and programmatic opportunities and how they are important in sustaining the MainePSP’s work and building capacity for future projects involving UMaine and its partners.
