Dear STEM education colleague,

The Student Spaceflight Experiments Program was designed as a model U.S. national STEM education initiative to inspire and engage the next generation.
It was launched in 2010, before "STEM" became a curricular focal point, and serves as a phenomenal, high media visibility, high caliber, turn-key program
that can provide a district a core STEM activity tuned to Next Generation Science Standards. Over 48,900 grade 5-15 students have now been immersed in
real experiment design across 99 communities - and 96 flight experiments - one for each community

The Summit features:
Over 45 workshops on topics such as collaborative strategies, community partnerships, engaging new audiences, environmental psychology, climate change education, advocacy, organizational development, and many more.
 
The Better Together Innovation Lab - an intensive, all day session for leaders, program innovators, and everyone who wants to take part in developing new ways to strengthen our impact through collaborations, alliances, and networks.
 
Keynotes and other plenary activities, as well as eye-opening and provocative ideas from all Summit participants.

The Maine Air Museum is open to the public from Memorial day weekend to the last weekend in September.  After we close to the public  the end of September we lend  four of our STEM demonstrations to schools.  We are located on the grounds of Bangor International Airport about two miles from I-95. Check out our web site:  www.maineairmuseum.com  Year before last, the Oxford Hills District borrowed  our exhibits.  The demonstrations all illustrate Bernoulli’s theory as related to aviation. They educate, amuse, confuse and entertain children of all ages!  They were designed and constructed by two of us retired teachers.  They are designed for classrooms and small groups. They are easily transported in a van and are on wheels. All need 110v  power.  My phone number here at our camp in Trenton is (207) 667-5776. My e-mail is  oldcrow2@verizon.net.   Our newest exhibit, “Amelia’s Grand Tour of Maine” is touring the state. It commemorates Amelia Earhart’s 1934 tour of Maine when she gave plane rides to women and girls in Bangor, Waterville and Augusta to encourage them to seek careers in science and aviation.   Please pass this on to your fellow science teachers.  Hank Marois, Maine Air Museum Director
