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 next year. Join the movement to inspire a future scientist!


If you are interested in this effort and would like to devote a couple hours and give back to the community, NOW is the time to register. To see which schools are participating this year, take a peek below. We are happy to reach out to a school near you if you’d like to stay local. P.S. You don’t need to be a science expert to volunteer! Please express your interest at info@mainebioscience.org

If you’re a middle school teacher or parent, and would like your middle school to participate, let us know! Send us an email at info@mainebioscience.org

If you work in a science field for a company, organization, University, etc. we would love your help! Send a representative to speak at a local middle school! Get in touch at
