AUGUSTA – Tuesday was Maine Earth Science Day at the Maine State Museum.
The event featured a series of exhibits and demonstrations focusing on Maine’s geology and the products of the Earth.
Whether it was by fish printing, talking to geologists or working with robotic arms, museum officials said science day will leave the kids with memories that will last a lifetime.
“We have students that come back and say I was there during science day and they bring their families back. That’s what we want. We want them to see the museum as a place of learning and a fun place for them to be and bring their families back to,” said Joanna Torow, the museum’s chief educator.
Torow said more than 1,000 students came to immerse themselves in the science event
