Educating Our Teachers
Portland, ME - Building Bridges is an outreach program organized by Maine's North Star Alliance Initiative’s K-12 Sub-committee aimed at connecting educators and industry. This fall twenty four Maine teachers and guidance counselors visited a variety of boat yards, composite shops, sail shops and boat building companies. The goal is to provide educators with an opportunity to gain a better understanding of the processes, required skills and employment needs of local employers. The educators came from three geographical areas, Bath, Wiscasset, and Augusta and represented a number of disciplines, including math, science, technology and social studies.
