2023 Maine Science Festival





 We have three different Calls for Ideas:


  • Weekend Programming: March 25-26, 2023.

  • Field Trip Day: March 23, 2023.

  • Tech Night: March 24, 2023.

Presenters should 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 presenting at the Field Trip Day, your audience is 7th and 8th grade students from public and private schools in Maine. You should try and 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.

Participants will be notified by early January 2023

Decisions about programming for the 2023 MSF will be based on types of programming, space availability, types of science, and reaching as wide an audience as possible.
