The GK-12 sensors! program is a collaborative effort between the University of Maine (UM) and Maine high schools. The program is focused on sensor technology, which is a high profile research area at UM. Sensors, which cover many engineering and science disciplines, have been integrated into high school courses such as chemistry, physics, mathematics, computer science and also civics. It is anticipated that students' exposure to sensors will encourage them to follow career paths in science and engineering. The program, which is completing year two, has had a significant impact on a number of Maine high schools, high school teachers and students, and UM graduate students. The program operation, accomplishments and activities are presented with plans for the program's future.
