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.
AR Girls is a NSF funded research project to teach teen girls digital storytelling through Augmented Reality (AR). The first cohort at Waterfall Arts is underway, and celebrated a huge success completing their Summer Intensive in August. The AR Girls are continuing to meet this fall to plan their Community Showcase on October 20th from 2-4pm at Waterfall Arts in Belfast Maine. Their program will end in December with a big bang, meeting with some interesting community professionals and experiencing exciting new digital experiences as they explore potential career pathways in science, ICT and arts.
We will be expanding AR Girls to two other arts organizations starting in January 2019. Stay tuned for more information!
