Deering High School's Science Club Rockets to Success at Maine Space Conference

Greetings, Deering High School Community!

Deering High School's Science Club stood as the exclusive representative for Portland Public Schools at the Inaugural Maine Space Conference, which took flight at the Holiday Inn by the Bay this past Sunday.This exceptional opportunity allowed our students to explore the frontiers of space science and the burgeoning aerospace industry right here in Maine. The dedicated students who proudly attended the conference are: Violet Blum Levine, Mya Landry, Connor Mulligan, Emma Murphy, Asa Tussing, and Ellis Wood. Their enthusiasm, commitment, and passion for science were truly inspiring.

The Maine Space Conference offers a portal into the latest research and educational breakthroughs, as well as insights into why Maine is set to become a hub for aerospace development. With Maine already home to renowned aerospace companies like bluShift in Brunswick, the organizers aim to inspire young minds to dive into the STEM field and potentially join this flourishing industry.

As the conference continues today, Monday, November 6th, we extend our heartfelt best wishes to our Science Club. They've done us proud, representing Deering High School and Portland Public Schools.

Terry Shehata from the Maine Space Grant Consortium emphasizes, 
"In terms of the ultimate outcome, we aim to engage our students, ensuring that after graduating from Maine high schools or colleges, they stay in Maine, either creating their own businesses or becoming an integral part of our workforce."

For a fascinating glimpse into the event, check out Asa Tussing of Deering High School, who was interviewed by WGME after our Sunday Night presentation. Here's the link to watch:
