Maine Science Festival Take-over: Colorful Chemysteries

Here at the Maine Discovery Museum, we like to think of March as science month! The Maine Science Festival - the first and only festival celebration of science in Maine, and MDM's largest program - is usually held over five days in March. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the MSF won't be able to be held this March. The MSF will be holding online forums for our high-school-and-up audience from January through March. And for our younger audience, the MSF is taking over the Discovery Kits! You'll learn about some of the remarkable scientists working in Maine, and have fun-filled science activities to explore:


Discover the most colorful science around! Create colors with chemistry! Turn light into rainbow colors, extract colors from candy, bugs, and tea! Meet invisible colors that only show up in a special lab!


*Please note that the listed dates and times are only for the deadline to order each kit. We will email you to let you know when your kit is ready so you can enjoy these science discoveries on your own schedule in the comfort of your home.
