Several Maine STEM Partnership teachers presented how they use 3D printers in their classrooms as the 3D-Printing Expo at Thomas College in Waterville, ME on April 27, 2018.  From using 3D printed cars in physics, to making bubble wands, and creating new bug species John McKechnie of Ellsworth High School, Karen Fream of East End Community School, Gina Jandreau of Madawaska Elementary School, and David Track of Vassalboro Community School provided tips and tricks to using 3D Printing in a meaningful way in the STEM classroom.  

They all did a great job!!

RiSE staff spent Friday of the Maine Science Festival exploring robots, paper airplanes and 3D printers with middle school students from around the state.

This year five Maine STEM Partnership teachers joined the RiSE Center in Atlanta for the National Science Teacher Association's annual conference. Each of these teachers represented the RiSE Center and presented on a few of the many RiSE Center programs and shared the impacts they have on their teaching.
