Your help could further MMSA’s vision of a brighter STEM future for the State of Maine and the nation. Today, I ask you to support MMSA and become a part of the movement to support exciting new ways for our youth to learn about science, technology, engineering, and math.
The 2020 International Science & Engineering Fair (ISEF) is going virtual this year. They’ll host a whole series of events online during the week of May 18-22. It’s open to everyone, but you need to register! Visit their virtual landing page to get started.
There’s so much to check out, so we thought we’d give you some top picks from MSSF staff who’ve all attended the in-person event in previous years.
Rebecca Clark Uchenna: Rebecca was blown away by ISEF in Los Angeles last year. Her top pick is the Excellence in Science & Technology Panel – very inspirational! She also loved Paul Strode’s presentation, Behind the Curtain of Uncertainty: A Crash Course in Statistics. It’s a must-see for teachers.
Stefany Burrell: Since joining MMSA in 2014, Stefany’s had the pleasure of attending ISEF in Pittsburgh and Phoenix. Her pick for students is Communicating Your Science and Doing It Well. For teachers, she’s particularly interested in the two Research at Home sessions.
Cary James: A former Bangor High School teacher, Cary has accompanied a number of students to ISEF. His top pick for Virtual ISEF is the Women in STEM Panel. But he also won’t miss the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Panel as his former student, Paige Brown, is one of the presenters!
