LIMESTONE — The Maine School of Science and Mathematics, currently ranked as the 10th best STEM school nationally by the US News and World Report publication, has recently deployed a web resource page highlighting opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics events for all students in the state.

The resource is supported, in part, by a $100,000 grant from the Jack Kent
Cooke Foundation. Data has been gathered with assistance from the Maine Mathematics and Science Alliance.

“The action by the Maine School of Science and Mathematics to better inform students about events and experiences in the STEM fields is an important and useful step, particularly for low-income students, who often have less access than more affluent students to such information,” said Cooke Foundation Executive
Director Harold O. Levy. “This could lead more students to pursue STEM degrees and careers, benefiting themselves and our nation.”

The newly added web page, www.MSSM.org/stem-resource, serves those students who are curious and intrigued by the rapidly expanding field of STEM. The page is a collection of STEM events, including competitions, expositions, field trips, workshops, summer camps, as well as experiences for those who are not
directly affiliated with a high school.

Although not a complete list, it is the mission of MSSM to provide a comprehensive warehouse for everyone in the STEM arena to benefit from.
