The Funhouse Science fair returns

On Saturday, April 27th, from 12-4 PM, come and join us at the Funhouse Commons for our 20th Science Fair! This event, which began in 2001, is a celebration of young scientific minds and their discoveries. After a four-year hiatus, we are thrilled to bring back this cherished tradition and infuse renewed energy into our community.

All Orcas K-12 students are encouraged to register their projects for the fair. Additionally, we welcome community members who are passionate about conservation and environmental science to share their work as vendors or volunteers. If you’re interested in participating, please contact Ryan@thefunhouse.org.

This year’s Science Fair will have an Earth Day theme and will feature free food and beverages, 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 projects.

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
