Maine DOE encourages educators to attend the upcoming Maine STEM Summit on Friday, Nov. 18 at Colby College in Waterville. This summit will provide an opportunity to foster discussion, engagement, and innovation across the education, workforce, and technology sectors of Maine. This year, K-12 educators are encouraged to apply for the first annual STEM Education Innovation Challenge Grant Competition to fund innovative projects in the classroom. Finalists of the challenge will present their pitches at the summit.
The Maine STEM Summit convenes K-12 educators and administrators, business leaders, learning scientists, nonprofit organizations, STEM researcher scientists, policymakers, parents, and students to learn and share with each other how to increase the capacity and access to STEM for all students.
