In the Classroom
During on-campus Open Houses, one of the most anticipated activities for students is the chance to sit in on the rigorous classes MSSM has to offer. With the current Covid restrictions, that is not possible. Here is a sampling of a variety of subjects. These videos do not compare to the experience of live classes and we took great effort to not disrupt the flow of each class, but you can get a feel for the speed of the class and teaching styles of instruction.

The MSSM STEM Summer Camp is a hands-on experiential camp for kids ages 10-14 to explore topics in science, technology, engineering, and math. It runs from June 28th to July 25th after which will be an Educators’ Camp for STEM educators in Maine. At the moment, both are still planned to take place on campus. If there are changes, they will be announced later in the spring.
We have collected various other videos to help you get a sense of the unique culture at MSSM.
