Mission

Mission
The long-term mission of the Maine ScienceCorps is to integrate and sustain broadly interdisciplinary science education collaboration into the graduate training of University of Southern Maine bioscience graduate students and to support the efforts of Maine teachers, including those in rural Maine, to bring authentic scientific experiences to their students. Through sustained ongoing connection of K-12 teachers with USM’s scientific higher education and research communities (including the advanced resources of NanoDiscovery Labs and other university research laboratory groups), the Maine ScienceCorps will include K-12 educators in a broader scientific community that will stimulate continued development of their scientific knowledge, laboratory skills, and classroom resources.
