Since the program's launch in 2005, an average of 10,000 students have come to our lab each year. To date, more than 86,000 students have experienced the program.
We offer LabVenture! at no charge and provide schools from across the state with free transportation. Throughout the school year, our buses travel to every county in Maine bringing excited young scientists to explore the Gulf of Maine at our Portland laboratory.
Thank you for providing our children with experiences that allow them to feel like real scientists!"

The cool thing about the institute was that they didn't tell us the answers. We had to figure them out by ourselves, using the scientific method."
For so many, the hands-on experimenting helps to make science alive and meaningful."
