The Funhouse Science fair returns

On Saturday, April 27th from 12-4 PM, the Funhouse Commons will host our 20th Science Fair! This beloved tradition began in 2001 and aims to inspire young scientific minds. After a four-year hiatus, we are thrilled to bring it back and inject new energy into our community.

All Orcas K-12 students are encouraged to register their projects for the fair. We also 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.

The 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 $500 for first place in high school, $350 for second place in high school, $250 for first place in middle school, $150 for second place in middle school, $100 for first place in elementary school, $75 for second place in elementary school, and $50 for third place in elementary school.

We need your help to make this event a success! We are seeking support from the community to raise $5,000 to cover the costs of food, beverages, awards, prizes
