This Week:
ME Bioscience Day 2020

We have reached over 5,100 students from 46 Maine middle schools this week.

Unlike in previous years, we were not able to send our companies to middle schools in 2020. Instead, we produced 3 ME Bioscience Day video presentations featuring Patrick Breeding (Marin Skincare), Chuck Lubelczyk (MMCRI), and Tori Denis (IDEXX). Science teachers across the state have been using these videos both in their classroom and virtually this week.

Check out the ME Bioscience Day videos on our website!
