Teachers have a truly powerful role in inspiring our next generation of scientists, leaders, and environmental stewards. We would not have the impact we do on young learners without the commitment, dedication, and creativity of Maine’s educators.
Like us, Shapleigh School teacher Peter Cady believes in the potential of hands-on exploration to spark kids’ interest in science.
This video demonstrates Peter’s passion for education, and how GMRI has helped him provide hands-on, minds-on science learning for his students.
As Peter says, “Science is an act of doing, not something we read about. They remember what they’ve directly observed and gotten their hands dirty with.”
We are honored to support teachers across the state in making science learning a dynamic, hands-on experience with our LabVenture andVital Signs programs.
