The Southern Maine Children's Water festival is held each May at the Portland Campus of the University of Southern Maine. Fourth - sixth grade teachers from across southern Maine are eligible to apply. Environmentally-affiliated organizations from across Maine provide classroom activities, presentations, hands-on exhibits, quiz contests and stage shows, all with a water theme.
This is a free event coordinated by leading state and nonprofit environmental organizations in Maine to advance environmental literacy, develop career interest in science, technology, engineering, and math fields, provide teachers with resource materials and classroom activities, and promote partnerships and collaboration between teachers and resource professionals.
