ME Bioscience Day
November 16, 2020 @ 7:00 am - November 20, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
Maine Bioscience Day is a statewide event that aims to get middle school students excited about science. The event focuses on educating Maine’s youth about the different career paths and opportunities that are available in the life sciences industry in Maine. Professionals in these fields volunteer to visit local middle school classrooms to talk with students about their career in science, their daily tasks, and the opportunities that are available in such careers.
Bioscience Association of Maine (BioME) started this initiative in 2016 to promote science as a subject in schools and create student awareness for a potential career path in a science field. ME Bioscience Day 2019 was able to reach over 3,300 students from 24 schools with 58 volunteers from 26 organizations.. Help us keep it going for fifth annual event in 2020!
