Ron Brown was one of the organizers of and a co-host for the Maine STEM/Ambassadors conference held February 1 at Texas Instruments in South Portland, Maine. The conference brought together approximately 20 local 6th grade teachers with a similar number of technical folks where they did a simple engineering project together and paired up for future classroom visits by the techies. Classroom visits have now begun and the feedback is wonderful! The conference was supported by Texas Instruments, with additional support from the Maine Math and Science Alliance, and the IEEE. The program is the alpha test for a national STEM education program.
