2020 MSF Potential Presenters:

Our programming team will go through the submittals and the 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 in the last three years. If you have any questions about this, please contact participate@mainesciencefestival.org

Audience, additional information: Workshops take place during the weekend of the MSF: March 21st-22nd, 2020, and can be held either at the Cross Insurance Center or at a location in Downtown Bangor. Where the workshop is hosted will be based on the space and infrastructure needs of all workshops that are part of the MSF.

Workshops are a set period of time where you present a topic and work through it (for example, nature illustration, Minecraft workshop, cheese making). The festival goer often (but not always) ends the workshop with something they can take home. The audience is determined by you and the difficulty of the science and/or the workshop itself.


We expect to have the programming finalized by January 2020.

The 6th Maine Science Festival is March 18-22nd, 2020.
