GMRI Home Delivery

Providing virtual education options for teachers, students, and parents.

To adapt to modern challenges we created the Home Delivery program to provide teachers, students, and parents with virtual education options. All of the programs below, adapted from the Gulf of Maine Research Institute’s education programs, are facilitated by experienced GMRI educators to give our teacher partners a break from carrying the load alone. All of these virtual programs are based on the GMRI programs teachers have come to know and love, and feature the same high-quality authentic science experiences.

Home Delivery Goals:

  • Ease the burden placed on teachers as they adapt to providing more virtual learning experiences.
  • Support the continued education of Maine's middle schoolers with authentic online educational experiences based on GMRI programs.

Home Delivery sessions require a device and internet connection. We will be using Zoom and Google tools, but may be able to adapt programs to other platforms as needed. Because we know this is a challenge for some students, we also have a small number of offline options. Please reach out to us if you want to explore those.

Scientist To Go Meetups

Our Scientist To Go program allows for students to virtually meet with a wide range of scientists and to learn a little bit more about what they do. These 45 minute sessions include presentations from the scientists and Q&A opportunity for students.

Express interest by emailing Drew Perlmutter and we will send you details of each meetup and sign-in information via email.

LabVenture Express

LabVenture Express is a virtual learning experience adapted from our LabVenture program. It includes two online interactives adapted from the lab experience just for Maine’s 5th- and 6th-grade students! Explore these interactives here.
