Celebrate Young Scientists at the Funhouse Commons’ 20th Science Fair on Earth Day!

The Funhouse Science Fair Returns

The Funhouse Commons is excited to host its 20th Science Fair on Saturday, April 27th from 12-4 p.m. This much-anticipated event first began in 2001 with the goal of celebrating and inspiring young scientific minds. After a brief hiatus, we are thrilled to announce the return of this cherished tradition, now revitalized and ready to bring excitement back to our community.

All Orcas K-12 students are encouraged to register their projects, and we also invite community members who have an interest in conservation and environmental science to participate. If you would like to be a vendor or volunteer at the science fair, please contact Ryan@thefunhouse.org. Our Science Fair, themed around Earth Day, will feature free food and beverages, live music, community exhibits, and most importantly, the remarkable creations of our young participants.

Every participant will receive an award, with top prizes being selected by our esteemed wandering wizards in elementary, middle school categories. The prestigious Richie Moore “Rocket Ship of Wonder” will be awarded to the top three best-in-show science projects. Prizes include $500 for 1st place in high school category, $250 for 1st place in middle school and $100 for 1st place in elementary school respectively.

We need your help to make this extraordinary event happen! We are seeking support from the community to raise $5,000 to cover costs for food & beverages supplies for this magical day! Volunteers are also needed to assist with setup activities & cleanup. Your tax-deductible donation &/or volunteer time are greatly appreciated & essential for the success of Science Fair! Remember it takes a village and a Funhouse together can create magic!
