2018 Maine Science Festival – quick review!

The 2018 MSF was another resounding success, and a wonderful celebration of the remarkable science happening throughout Maine. Just a few highlights:

– Over 60 events and activities were held over the span of four days, with 9,500 attendees over the weekend.

– We had a spectacular headliner event with Robert Krulwich from RadioLab, with an edited version of his talk available via Maine Public.

– Another extraordinary number of partners and collaborators from throughout Maine, covering higher education, arts organizations, nonprofits, and businesses.

– A fantastic Friday Field Trip Day, with almost 700 middle school students from all over the state having a day of MSF programming just for them.
