BANGOR – It was a weekend full of science. Many universities and businesses were showing off what they do for science during the second Maine science festival this weekend.
Its a way for the community to celebrate science and technology in all its forms. Located at the Cross Insurance Center it showcased hands-on activities, panel discussions, presentations, workshops and performances.
“The most important thing to take from this is that we have great stuff happening in Maine. We don’t have to go anywhere else to do or have anybody else come in to tell us how to do it. Take a chance this weekend and meet people who are doing extraordinary work every single day and find out how great it is.” said director Kate Dickerson.
The headliner for the event was Nate Silver from 538. He talked about how he uses science to make his probability and predictions..
Silver is responsible for accurately predicting 49 out of 50 states for the delegate count presidential elections. Silver spoke at Hampden academy on Saturday.
