BANGOR – The Maine Science Festival is a month and a half away and organizers say they need volunteers.
The annual event will feature more than 70 activities over five days, starting March 13.
Some science activities are just for kids and others are for all ages or 21 and older.
Organizers say they need about 30 volunteers for checking people in and other behind-the-scenes work.
The festival draws scientists and stem presenters from all over the state.

“We take a big, huge spotlight and shine it on all the cool stuff that’s happening in Maine and we do it in ways that are very different than in schools. We do hands-on activities and workshops and talks,” said Kate Dickerson, the festival’s founder and director.
Volunteers must be of high school age and up.
