Science and Engineering
Knowledge of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) plays a key role in developing informed citizens. By increasing understanding in these areas, the Maine Department of Education seeks to support gains in student scientific achievement and aspirations to pursue STEM careers. Furthermore, careers in STEM-related fields are some of the highest wage, highest growth areas in Maine.
As part of the Maine DOE’s commitment to supporting schools in the delivery of effective K-12 science instructional programs, the Science & Engineering section of this website provides students, teachers, administrators, nonprofits, higher education faculty, and parents with a broad range of resources reflective of Maine’s Learning Standards.
