Maine STEM Partnership Moving Forward: How do we work together to build excellence in STEM education for all students?
The Maine STEM Partnership Annual Fall Summit is returning to the Samoset Resort. This year we will use our time together to look at current and future STEM challenges in the world and discuss how we can work together to meet these challenges. The majority of this summit will be spent in a combination of plenary sessions and interactive panel discussions.
The Maine STEM Partnership is a STEM education improvement community supporting STEM educators statewide. Our mission is to build and sustain a diverse, statewide community that strengthens PK–16+ STEM education by promoting rich, research-supported classroom experiences that deepen learning and engage all students. This community seeks to build STEM literacy and career competency, and to encourage students to become STEM educators and education researchers.
The Maine STEM Partnership is based in the Maine Center for Research in STEM Education (RiSE Center) at the University of Maine. The RiSE Center is an interdisciplinary center organized to conduct research, graduate education, and professional learning, and to build community partnerships focused on improving the research and research-based practice of STEM education at all levels of instruction.
Registration includes Friday night dinner and lodging, and Saturday breakfast and lunch. $150 registration fee (waived for certain RiSE Center grant-funded communities).
To request a reasonable accommodation to participate, please contact the RiSE Center: firstname.lastname@example.org or 207-581-4672.
Registration is open through October 26.
