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 opportunities they might have working in a science-related field in their future. 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. In 2018, we were able to reach 2,000 students through ME Bioscience Day 2018. Help us keep it going for fourth annual event this year. Join the movement to inspire a future scientist!f
