The Funhouse Science fair returns

The Science Fair is back! Join us on Saturday, April 27th at the Funhouse Commons from 12-4 PM for a celebration of scientific discoveries. This beloved tradition, which began in 2001, will showcase the work of young minds and inspire new generations to pursue careers in science.

We welcome all Orcas K-12 students to register their projects for the fair. We also invite community members who are passionate about conservation and environmental science to share their work as vendors or volunteers. If you’re interested in participating, contact today.

The Science Fair will have an Earth Day theme and feature live music, community exhibits, and impressive displays from our young participants. Each participant will receive an award, with the top three projects in elementary, middle, and high school categories chosen by our esteemed judges. The coveted Richie Moore “Rocket Ship of Wonder” will be awarded to the best-in-show project.

Prizes for the competition include: High School – 1st place $500, 2nd place $350, 3rd place $250; Middle School – 1st place $250, 2nd place $150, 3rd place $100; Elementary – 1st place $100, 2nd place $75, 3rd place $50.
