The second session of professional development will be held July 8th, focused on ‘Developing Achievable Science & Engineering Fair Projects’. Come learn how to conduct background research and literature reviews and hear directly from a MSSF student on how to develop a research plan. These fundamental skills are the backbone to a solid science and engineering project.

The final session of professional development will be on ‘Fostering Effective Science Communication’. Learn how to coach students in writing abstracts, designing posters and quad charts, and presenting work via video. Hear from a MSSF student on how to present and interact with judges at MSSF. 

 

These sessions are brought to you by the Reach project at MMSA and The Jackson Laboratory. Learn more about MSSF at maine-state-science-fair.org.

During this pandemic educators have been forced to reinvent the way they reach kids and all of us here at MMSA have been working hard to shift our programming, professional learning opportunities, and research to overcome this incredibly difficult challenge for educators across Maine and the nation.  

Your support is a crucial component of our efforts to continually expand STEM education programs during these uncertain and challenging times.
