It’s Back to School and There’s Plenty for Students at www.Maine.gov
AUGUSTA, Maine – September 1, 2005 – Maine students have more information available to them than ever before. As the new school year commences, students across Maine will be seeking out information on the Internet to enhance their learning. For students wishing to learn more about Maine, http://www.maine.gov offers learning tools for students and provides interaction with state government through the “Kids & Students” page.
Maine.gov includes information and services for students as young as kindergarten-aged and for life-long students of Maine’s culture, history and government. Visit the Maine.gov “Homework Help” page to assist with assignments such as a written report on Maine mottos and symbols, wildlife or geography. This free resource provides students with facts about Maine, history of the state, statistics and other resources and also allows users to ask questions of a Maine state librarian or find a near-by public library.
Learning is fun for students that use the “Maine Kids 9-1-1” page which presents tips on safety through puzzles, an online coloring book and an interactive game designed to educate users on the proper use of the 9-1-1 service. The “Secretary of State’s Kid’s Page” offers facts, contests, and the “Road to Maine Laws,” an online cartoon illustration of how laws are made.
Students interested in applying to a college or university in Maine should visit the “Colleges and Universities” page to learn more and compare public universities, state training academies, the Maine Community College System or private colleges in Maine.
Regardless of one’s age or experience, there is something for everyone to learn on Maine.gov. Summer’s over, but the fun is just starting at www.Maine.gov!
