    The Elementary Science Summit is coming up November 30. If you haven’t registered yet, don’t miss this opportunity to connect with like-minded people from across New England to start bringing high quality science back to our elementary classrooms. We’re looking forward to seeing you at EDC’s headquarters 43 Foundry Ave in Waltham, MA. Check-in and light breakfast begins at 8:30 am, our first session will start at 9. Watch for more details right after Thanksgiving.

    Elementary Science Summit:

    Preparing K-5 for a STEM Future

    Research shows that children with hands-on science opportunities at an early age have greater STEM success later in life. However, most elementary age children get little, if any, time for science. One New England state, for example reported that 45% of students in PreK–grade 2 and 35% of students in grades 3-5 receive less than 9 hours of science instruction per year. Science is a pathway to STEM innovation, careers, and future success but by depriving our students of science in the early grades we are setting them up to struggle. If we want to reverse these trends, we have to start early. The Elementary Science Summit will take the first concrete steps to reversing that trend in New England.

    Join educators, school and district administrators, business leaders, parents, journalists and philanthropists from across New England for a day of:

    · Learning about the current state of science in New England’s elementary schools

    · Experiencing high quality elementary science teaching

    · Meeting principals who have elevated science in their schools and sustained their students’ strong learning outcomes

    · Creating action plans you can pursue with others in your state to make elementary science a reality for all children

    The DOE is hosting a professional learning event focused on STEAM, coding, and computational thinking concepts on Saturday, December 1st at the RiSE Center at the University of Maine in Orono.

    The event is open to all Maine educators, and we ask that they register by November 16th so that we can order materials for them (they get to keep a Love to Code kit that can be used when they return to their classrooms).

    More information and a link to register can be found here:
