About MainePSP - Annual Summit

SAVE THE DATE!Point Lookout Resort & Conference Center

The third annual Maine Physical Sciences Partnership Summit will be held at Point Lookout Resort & Conference Center in Northport, Maine on November 15-16, 2013.  We are thrilled to welcome Sarah Michaels as our keynote speaker this year.  Many of you might recognize Sarah as a co-author of Ready, Set, Science.  She will be speaking on the links between the practices in ELA, mathematics, and science and her group’s development of materials to support teachers in instruction of modeling and argumentation, “Talk Science.”  We are using this professional development as part of the Maine Elementary Science Partnership and have discussed ways that it can support work in the MainePSP. Sarah’s talk is scheduled for 6-7 PM on Friday evening, during dinner.

Conference participants – PSP teachers, University of Maine faculty and staff, school administrators, and special guests – will learn more about the PSP, all of the work that’s been completed in the last year, and our exciting plans for the future. The program will include a mix of speakers, panel discussions, breakout groups, and networking opportunities.

The Summit will take place all day on Friday, November 15th and will end at 1:30pm on the 16th.

School Administrators: If you can’t attend the whole meeting, consider attending at least Friday afternoon through the Keynote dinner (3:00 to 7:00). An Administrator Table will be tailored specifically towards you.

THE SUMMIT IS FREE TO PARTICIPANTS. All food and lodging will be covered by the Maine RiSE Center. Lodging at Point Lookout will be in shared cabins on the resort property (single rooms, unless a double room is preferred). Lodging is available on Thursday and Friday nights. Saturday night lodging is also included for the PSP Advisory Board, Leadership Team, and External Evaluators who are participating in post-conference meetings.
