Even though the full 2020 Maine Science Festival was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we were able to go forward with the judging and awards for our student film contests. The middle school contest requires students to make a mock movie trailer for that film about science that does not (yet) exist. The only thing that has to be in the trailer is science. For the high school category, the students create short films that include science.
1st Place: Nhan, John, and William from Bangor High School, presenting C.H.N.O.P.S.: The Basic Elements of Life
2nd Place: Bryce and Tyler from Bangor High School, presenting The Clone
