Teach ME Outside
Teach ME Outside (TMO) supports and works in partnership with Maine communities to ensure that all Maine youth have access to powerful, culturally relevant, hands-on, environmental learning opportunities. This collaborative project works towards achieving that goal, by utilizing a strategic and data-informed process to develop supports for educators and to inform policy. TMO began by building on data from the 2019 Census of Community-Based Environmental Learning in Maine. This data led to investment and development of community-designed professional learning, culturally responsive evaluation support, network-building, advocacy, and increased outreach and communication across the state. TMO is led by a partnership between the Maine Mathematics and Science Alliance, Maine Environmental Education Association, and Nature Based Education Consortium.
