An excellent opportunity to expand science horizons this summer!
As a follow up to ME Bioscience Day 2018, BioME has decided to fund 4 scholarships in the form of 1-week-long summer science camps at the Maine School of Science and Mathematics in Limestone. Eligible students must be age 11-14 and attend one of the schools that participated in ME Bioscience Day 2018 on Nov 7. The camps run between June 30 and Aug 3. 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 March 31, 2019 to be considered.
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 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.
