2019 MSF Potential Presenters: Our programming team will go through the submittals and the 2019 Friday Field Trip Day programming will be set up based on their recommendations. The programming team will make their judgments based on a number of different factors, including: type of science/math, type of event, audience, innovative approaches happening in Maine, revealing hidden secrets, diversity of programming from past years, and logistically what we can make work.


If you have presented in the past: in order to ensure the viability of the MSF, your activity MUST BE DIFFERENT than what you have presented previously. If you have any questions about this, please contact participate@mainesciencefestival.org


Audience, additional information: Our Friday Field Trip is open to 7th and 8th grade students from schools across the state of Maine, and will take place on Friday, March 15th, 2019, from 9:00am-1:00pm, at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor. The number of students will be capped at approximately 500 students.

A Hands-on activity is an activity where the students walk up to you and dive into the science you’re presenting. The set up is similar to a vendor space at a conference.

The space for hands-on partners is two 8-foot tables.


We expect to have the programming finalized by January 2019.

The 5th Annual Maine Science Festival is March 13-17th, 2019.
