Maine Connections & Pathways to STEM

Our goal is to strengthen the Maine network of STEM education, research, and industry by continuing to build, update, maintain and expand a web-based interface providing up-to-date resources for students, parents, educators, and other professionals. The Web site and related outreach activities will provide information and pathways for pursuing studies and related careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, specifically relevant to Maine residents. It will also function as a forum to bring together diverse user groups ? students, educators, parents, researchers, businesspeople, policymakers - with information about STEM programs, events, institutions, and careers in Maine.
