K-12 Initiatives - Collaboratives

MainePSP Collaboratives are regional meetings where teachers, university faculty, and researchers can come together to talk about the teaching and learning of physical and earth sciences. Since the fall of 2010, collaboratives have occurred on a monthly basis in Central Maine (Orono/Old Town), Downeast Maine (Ellsworth) and Midcoast Maine (Searsport/Belfast). Many of the teachers who attend Collaboratives are implementing MainePSP programs in their grade 6-9 classrooms, but life science teachers and math teachers from all grades are also encouraged to attend, as are elementary school teachers.

A typical Collaborative includes the following:
