Today, more than ever before, educators need your support! During this pandemic they 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. Please support MMSA today so that we can continue to expand our support of STEM educators during these uncertain and challenging times.
