BioME is funding 2 Summer Science Camps for Maine Middle Schoolers!

An excellent opportunity to learn some science this summer!

As a follow up to ME Bioscience Day 2017, BIOME has decided to fund 2 scholarships (1 boy and 1 girl) in the form of 1-week-long summer science camps at the Maine School of Science and Mathematics in Limestone. Students need to be 12-14 and attend one of the schools that participated in ME Bioscience Day 2017 on Nov 8. The camps run between July 1 and Aug 4 and any week can be chosen, depending on age restrictions and availability. The scholarships cover room, board and transportation. Students should apply directly with us no later than April 13, 2018 to be considered.

Some transportation Details:

A camp chaperoned bus travels along Route 95 stopping at designated spots between Limestone and South Portland for each camp session. Families will receive a transportation form in the spring that allows the family to indicate how a camper will be arriving and departing from camp. Families have the option of selecting the camp bus on this form. The cost to ride the camp bus is $25.00 each way.
The specific stop information can be seen on online portal once a camper has applied for camp.
For your reference the stops are located in South Portland, Lewiston, Augusta, Newport, Orono and Houlton.
