MIE Receives Maine Outdoor Learning Initiative Award for Grades 6-12 Calais, ME – March 21, 2024 - Maine Indian Education is pleased to announce that the Maine Department of Education has awarded its schools with a Maine Outdoor Learning Initiative (MOLI) award. This award will provide students in grades 6-12 with unique opportunities to engage in cultural experiences and place-based learning, with a strong emphasis on STEM fields. The MOLI award recognizes Maine Indian Education's commitment to providing students with innovative and immersive learning experiences that connect them with their heritage and the natural world around them. By combining cultural knowledge with hands-on STEM education, the program aims to foster a deeper understanding and appreciation for both traditional wisdom and modern scientific principles. Dr. Reza Namin, Superintendent of Maine Indian Education, expressed his enthusiasm for the award, stating, "We are thrilled to receive the Maine Outdoor Learning Initiative award. This recognition validates our efforts to create meaningful, culturally relevant educational opportunities for our students. By integrating traditional knowledge with STEM disciplines, we are empowering our youth to become well-rounded, critical thinkers who are prepared to lead and innovate in the 21st century." The MOLI-funded programming will include a range of activities, such as field trips to significant cultural sites, outdoor research projects, and collaborations with tribal elders and STEM professionals. These experiences will not only enhance students' academic knowledge but also strengthen their connection to their community and the environment. "This award opens up a world of possibilities for our students, including our high school students" added Dr. Namin. "By engaging in place-based learning and exploring the rich cultural heritage of the Wabanaki, Passamaquoddy and Penobscot communities, our students will gain a deeper appreciation for their own identity and the importance of preserving and advancing indigenous knowledge. We are excited to see the positive impact this initiative will have on their academic and personal growth."
