Community Lab Space for Your Group
In the heart of Sanford Research, you’ll find a state-of-the-art research lab that provides research space and equipment for the community.
Public and private groups are welcome to use the space for:
- Hands-on activities facilitated by the Sanford PROMISE team
- Research activities and projects you develop under PROMISE scientists’ supervision
We also host events including a family science festival and a community lecture series.
It’s All About Science Festival 2020
The It’s All About Science Festival is a hands-on celebration and exploration of all things science, technology, engineering and mathematics (better known as STEM). Did you know science is all around us, all the time? The mission of the festival is to promote a science-centered community by displaying “all things science” to you, our community. We encourage you to spend some time exploring and learning about the science all around us.
Attend the PROMISE Community Lecture Series
Are you interested in science? Have you ever wondered about the scientific research being performed in your own community? The PROMISE Community Lecture Series provides a unique opportunity for science-minded individuals within our community to learn about local research projects from the scientists themselves. Monthly lectures are provided by leading academic and industry scientists within the region.
