So This Happened at MSSM!

Hello MSSM Community!

After a long and successful year at the Maine School of Science and Mathematics, it is finally time to rest. We wish the best of luck to all of the graduated seniors and will miss seeing their faces! The MSSM class of 2017 graduates will be attending a wide variety of universities this Fall. A few of these universities (out of many!) are the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the University of Maine, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and Colby College. Over the Summer, many rising seniors will be entering college mode; Common Application essays will be written, SATs will be taken, colleges will be visited... our seniors are prepared! We are so excited to start a new year of learning and meet all of the first year students. Have a great, restful Summer and we will see you this Fall! That's a wrap for this week's edition of "So This Happened at MSSM"

Editor's Note: We have appreciated Sarah's unique and engaging blog throughout the past year as well as her presence every week as the Admission Office Work Assignment representative. Mrs. Scott and I wish you a very restful summer and thank you for all of your work.


Hello MSSM Community!

Next year, MSSM will be offering many new and exciting courses! These classes range from STEM fields to Humanities–there is definitely a variety! Our new Humanities department chair, Mr. Mark Tasker, will be bringing in Anthropology 1, Anthropology 2, Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, and Sociology. These classes will give students an opportunity to earn social science credits through interesting and challenging curriculum. In the science department, Dr. Debbie Eustis-Grandy is bringing back a former class, Genetics and Biotechnology. This is a biology class that explores genetics. Another science class that will be offered is Advanced Topics in Physics. This is an advanced course that students may take after AP Physics C. With all of these new classes, we can expect an awesome year!

Hello MSSM Community!

Recently, things at MSSM have been quite busy! With Advanced Placement exams, students have definitely been kept occupied. Students are in full test-taking mode, as AP exams are very important in this academic environment. (Fun fact: MSSM students' AP scores have reflected that our college readiness index is 100%... great job, MSSM!) Thanks to the year-round support of our incredible teachers, college counselor, and many others, MSSM students have the tools to succeed. In addition, hours and hours of hard work are put into exam preparation by the students. Best of luck to those who are testing in the next few weeks!

Hello MSSM Community!

On Tuesday April 4th, the state math meet was held in Augusta. MSSM's Ivory team drove a long but worthwhile four hours to the competition. The fun-filled day of math ended in very pleasant results: MSSM Ivory finished in first place with a score of 801 points (a whole 140 points ahead of the second place team). In addition, Brett Foster tied for first place, scoring a perfect meet of 72 points! James Hawkes, Peter Nielsen, and Tobyn Blatt tied for sixth place with 67 points. We are extremely proud of our classmates and the efforts that they have made this MAML season.

Hello, MSSM community!

As many people know, MSSM offers a myriad of STEM related extracurriculars. One of the activities that we have been offering for a while is competing in the Science Bowl. Once a year, the U.S. Department of Energy hosts a National Science Bowl for young scientists to participate in. Teams participate in several matches to determine the rankings. Each match consists of two teams in a division and approximately 20 questions are asked. Students are challenged with questions ranging from topics in physics, biology, astronomy, and many other branches of science. Last weekend, MSSM sent two teams of five to the Maine Regional High School Science Bowl. After a long day of matches, MSSM Team A was completely undefeated in Division X and MSSM Team B had only two losses in Division Y. In order to determine which teams went to the finals and which went to the semifinals, the two MSSM teams competed head-on! The two teams definitely put up a great fight, giving each other some friendly competition. In the end MSSM team A went on to the finals and team B went on to the semifinals. Team B finished in 4th place after competing with Greely and MSSM team A finished second to Cape Elizabeth. MSSM did excellent as a school, being the only school with both its teams making it to the semi-finals. Great job, MSSM Science Bowl!
