Raise a glass and funds for MDM!

The Maine Discovery Museum (MDM) has been effervescent this year with open doors! Our community's remarkable support inspires us as we emerge from our pandemic challenges. Since 2001, the Maine Discovery Museum has helped people of all ages to discover the world around them through play, creative exploration, and science. We have extraordinary plans for the months ahead and need your help. 

The MDM team continues to work to build a brighter future for science and play in Maine. Additionally, our team has been busy shifting from cultivating at-home STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) discoveries to relaunching in-person STEAM experiences. MDM aims to support at least 5,000 students with our STEAM programming this summer. Our education team designs programs like those listed below to help summer learning, keep curiosity alive, and bridge summer learning gaps. Through free programs, discounted community memberships, and MDM scholarships. Your support now enables us to support students throughout Maine this summer.

  • GSK Science in the Summer:  a FREE program that delivers STEM education to 800+ students throughout Maine.  

  • STEAMy Summer programs provide daily summer learning opportunities to visitors of all ages.  

  • Discovery Camp encourages students to dive deeply into engineering, chemistry, and natural science.  


We are hosting our first 21+ event since 2019 on July 8, 2022. Arts & Drafts is a multi-floor, hands-on event with adult beverages and charcuterie. Proceeds will support MDM’s STEAM programming this summer. We hope you will join us as we raise a glass and funds for MDM!
