BioME Student Showcase

The BioME Student Showcase started as an initiative in 2019 to support innovation and commercialization of student ideas in Maine, as well as connect current students with potential future employers and entrepreneurial resources in the state. The first annual BioME Student Showcase was sponsored by Maine Technology Institute and took place on Thursday, April 25, 2019 at USM’s Hannaford Hall in Portland, ME.

BioMe Student Showcase is an exciting opportunity for Maine high school and college students to show off their passion for life science and present their research for a chance to win cash and academic prizes. BioME Student Showcase features TWO competition categories: (1) high school students (grades 9-12) and (2) college students (undergraduate and graduate). Students must be enrolled in Maine educational institutions to participate. Judges for the BioME Student Showcase include Maine scientists, entrepreneurs, academia and start-up/commercialization experts.
