Family Science Night

  • July 11, 2024
  • 4:00 - 6:00 pm
  • MDIBL Lower Campus

Family Science Night at the MDI Biological Laboratory is an annual summer tradition where scientists, students, and members of the community come together to encourage learners of all ages to engage with science. 

Family Science Night 2024 is brought to you by our community Sponsor, Machias Savings Bank.


Family Science Night promotes scientific literacy by bringing science to life. This event is an important part of the curriculum for our undergraduate summer fellows, serving as a practical application of the skills developed in their Communicating Science class. Children and families explore, experiment and talk about science at interactive stations guided by our scientists and their students. Student researchers participating in MDI Bio Lab’s undergraduate summer research fellowship program design and produce a wide variety of hands-on activities to explain their biomedical research.

In addition to more than a dozen activities and exhibits organized by MDI Biological Laboratory student fellows, we are thrilled to host several community partners. Bring your friends and family and have fun with a variety of hands-on science activities!

Please note that there will be photography and video recordings of this event for publicity purposes.
