The Maine STEM Summit provides an opportunity to foster discussion, engagement, and innovation across the education, workforce, and technology sectors of Maine. Join the conversation about how to increase the capacity and access to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) for all students throughout Maine. This summit convenes K-12 in-school and out-of-school educators and administrators, business leaders, learning scientists, nonprofit organizations, STEM researcher scientists, policymakers, parents, and students to learn and share with each other to build capacity for STEM experiences across Maine.

The 2016 Maine STEM Summit will focus on the theme “Building Bridges: Developing Partnerships to Build Capacity for STEM Education in Maine”. This summit provides the opportunity to do more than just passively participate and listen to sessions. In addition to an outstanding learning experience the 2016 Maine STEM Summit is designed to support attendees in adding their voices to define new collaborations, projects, and initiatives of many different forms. To address the theme of building bridges the conference welcomes session proposals in the following strands:

1) Maine’s STEM Workforce: Challenges and Opportunities
2) Professional Development: Share, Collaborate, Reform
3) Looking Ahead: Defining and Advocating for Maine STEM in 2026
4) What’s New and What’s Next for STEM Education Research in Maine 

Each session coordinator is strongly encouraged to bring collaborators into the conversations and presentation. Successful proposals will tell the story of more than one organization’s experiences as well as providing interactive discussions and activities for participants.
