Newspaper Features Physical Sciences Partnership

The Castine Patriot published a feature story about the Maine Physical Sciences Partnership (PSP), a collaboration of some 50 rural Maine schools, three University of Maine colleges, three Maine nonprofits with expertise in science education, and science and technology leaders at the Maine Department of Education to promote the teaching and learning of physical sciences in grades 6-9, and the preparation of science teachers at the University of Maine. Several participating teachers said the program training also improves teaching methods. Erika Allison, the Maine PSP program director, said in an interview the goal of the program is to get students to do science instead of merely reading about it.
