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.
How can we use community-based experiences to empower
students in STEM learning?
The Experiential STEM project is bringing together a variety of research-based strategies to enable instructional reform that will give students the opportunity to:
- Become more empowered in learning the content they need to succeed academically
- Improve academic achievement
- See the connections between what they learn in the classroom and how it applies to their communities
- Create lasting connections to the STEM workforce needs in their own communities
Throughout 2019, MMSA is providing focused, non-hierarchical professional development that works with teams of students and educators together –learning and planning curriculum side-by-side. Educators and students are working together to identify problems within their community and use STEM learning to develop lasting solutions.
This project is currently funded by the Davis Family Foundation.
