This summer, Community Central Teen Leaders are joining teen leaders and interns across the state to teach the UMaine EPSCOR Summer of Science program.

The Summer of Science program consists of science sessions taught weekly at over 40 sites for six weeks. This year’s theme is Find Your Inner Engineer.

Youth participants across the state will help interns and teen leaders solve engineering problems as they think about how we could get materials to an island to build a clubhouse. Stay tuned to see what our young scientists learn and create!
