What is the Science Teacher Academy?

The Science Teacher Academy (STA) is a program of the Maine Discovery Museum that is being developed to address the gap in professional development opportunities available for elementary school teachers to more effectively and confidently teach science. The STA will partner with teachers, administrators, schools of education, museums, and other informal science organizations to greatly expand the science that is taught in schools in Maine, and better prepare those teachers in science teaching.
