The Funhouse Science fair returns

It’s time to get ready for our 20th Science Fair at the Funhouse Commons on Saturday, April 27th from 12-4 PM! This event, which began in 2001, aims to showcase and inspire the groundbreaking discoveries made by young scientific minds. After a four-year hiatus, we are thrilled to bring back this cherished tradition and infuse new vitality into our community.

All Orcas K-12 students are encouraged to register their projects for the fair. In addition, we welcome passionate community members who are dedicated to conservation and environmental science to share their work as vendors or volunteers. If you are interested in taking part, please reach out to Ryan@thefunhouse.org.

The Science Fair will have an Earth Day theme and will feature free food and beverages, live music, community exhibits, and the 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 highly coveted Richie Moore “Rocket Ship of Wonder” will be awarded to the standout 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, 3rd place $50.

We need your help from the community to cover the costs of food
