What’s BioME Student Showcase?
Come meet your future workforce at the BioME Student Showcase! Learn about Maine high school and college students’ bioscience research projects with a potential of commercialization. This fun and creative competition offers plenty of valuable networking with scientists, researchers, biotech professionals, academia and entrepreneurial resources’ representatives in Maine. Students will show off their passion for life science and present their research for a chance to win attractive cash and academic prizes.
A Spring Networking Reception will follow the Student Showcase this year. Come network with life sciences professionals and students in Maine over hors d’oeuvres.
The goal of this event is to support innovation and commercialization of student ideas in Maine and connect current students with potential future employers and entrepreneurial resources in the state.
