The Funhouse Science Fair Returns

On April 27th from 12-4 p.m., the Funhouse Commons will be hosting its 20th Science Fair, a celebration of young scientific minds and their amazing discoveries. This event started in 2001 with the goal of inspiring and promoting science education in our community. After a four-year break, it is back with renewed energy and excitement to bring joy to our community once again.

All Orcas K-12 students are welcome to register their projects, and we invite community members interested in presenting their work in conservation and environmental science. If you are interested in being a vendor or volunteering at the science fair, please contact This Science Fair will have an Earth Day theme, featuring free food and drinks, live music, community displays, and fantastic projects from our young participants.

Every participant will receive an award, with the top three prizes in elementary, middle, and high school categories chosen by our esteemed wandering wizards. The prestigious Richie Moore “Rocket Ship of Wonder” will also be awarded to the top three best-in-show science projects. The breakdown of prizes is as follows: High School: 1st place $500, 2nd place $350, 3rd place $250. Middle School: 1st place $250, 2nd place $150, 3rd place $100.
