Maine Mathematics & Science Alliance is recruiting a new cohort of Teacher Fellows! If you’re a high school STEM teacher and you’d like to bring students to the Maine State Science Fair (MSSF) for the first time, this is a great way to get started. MSSF recognizes students for their original research in over a dozen categories including engineering, computer science, math and behavioral sciences.
This year we will be facilitating hybrid professional development over the summer. We will hold three sessions virtually using Zoom with the final session being an in-person event at our new office location on Water Street in Augusta, ME. Topics covered may include research plan development and project design, the project review and approval process, data analysis, and science communication.
