Back to School with RiSE Center Resources

During August, Beth Muncey, professional development coordinator at the University of Maine Research in Stem Education (RiSE) Center, packed 326 bins of supplies for 94 teachers across the state of Maine, who will use them to support learning by 4,646 students in their classes.

As part of the Maine STEM Partnership, the RiSE Center provides additional kits as teachers and students move through their curricula during the school year, and professional learning for teachers who are new to the lessons and equipment. The program is supported by school district partners and private donations.
