  • Project Manager I

    The Education Project Manager-I (PM) is primarily responsible for providing administrative support and coordination for a complex, multi-partner project operating across Maine and the Northeast. The project contributes to achieving the aim of GMRI’s Education team to create a climate-literate generation empowered with the fundamental STEM (Science Technology Engineering Mathematics) skills needed to tackle the challenges ahead. This project’s work includes 1) creating authentic, data-rich learning experiences for youth in both formal and informal environments; and 2) launching and supporting peer communities of formal and informal educators collaborating to build their own confidence and competence with climate and data literacy in order to better support youth. A central focus of the work is to enable STEM and climate learning experiences that are compelling and relevant for youth in Maine’s rural, immigrant/refugee, and Indigenous communities.
