2022 Maine Science Festival


We are planning for the in-person return of the Maine Science Festival in March 16-20, 2022, as long as it is safe to do so. And we need your help! 

 We have two different Calls for Ideas:


  • General Programming (March 19-20, 2022)

  • Field Trip Day (March 17, 2022) - note that this is a THURSDAY.

Presenters should be able to participate and have expertise or knowledge to be part of the event.

If you are submitting an idea for General Programming, your audience is the general public. If your event is for high school and up, the language and explanations for your presentation should be presented as if the last science class someone took was in high school.

If you are presented at the Field Trip Day, your audience is ~600 7th and 8th grade students from Maine, and the focus is to connect the dots for what the students are learning in school to all the ways science, engineering, technology, and innovation are  found in Maine.


Proposals that are accepted for the Festival will have support in arranging additional participants, moderators, etc. as needed. 

Click on the button below to submit your idea.

The 2022 MSF Calls for Ideas are due by November 19, 2021

Participants will be notified by early January 2022

Decisions about programming for the 2022 MSF will be based on types of programming, space availability, types of science, and reaching as wide an audience as possible.
