Sign-ups for the 2019 Friday Field Trip Day will begin in September 2018
Friday Field Trip Day at the MSF, March 15th, 2019
The Maine Science Festival is once again hosting a Friday Field Trip Day, and we have a change for 2019: the Friday Field Trip day will only be available to 7th and 8th graders from schools around the state. We’re incorporating this change based on feedback and our experiences from past festivals, and as a way to ensure the best possible experience for these students. The Friday Field Trip Day presenters will be creating their programming explicitly for this age group, and they take great care in ensuring the content will be a good match.
As always, the remainder of the Maine Science Festival will have events and activities for all ages, all but the headliner available free-of-charge.
The Friday Field Trip Day will be held at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor, with a tentative time of 9:00am-1:00pm. There is no-cost to attend the Friday Field Trip Day, thanks to our sponsors, but attendees must commit to attending for the whole time. The Field Trip Day programming is designed explicitly for 7th and 8th grade students.
We will be limiting the audience to approximately 500 students. In keeping with our mission to inspire students in all of Maine, priority will be given to schools who have never attended the festival.
