Why is there a fee?
Science FUNday has grown in size over the years—approximately 2500 guests attend each year! The event relies heavily on student volunteers, sponsorships, grants, donations, and profit from the previous year’s concession. We have introduced a nominal fee to assist with recovering event costs (e.g. demo materials, cleaning, etc) and to ensure that the event offers the best possible experience for all young scientists who will participate, learn, and experiment!
All remaining proceeds following cost recovery will go towards preparing the next Science FUNday as well as Science FUNdamentals’ regular classroom programming throughout the year. The student group and registered charity conducts experiments throughout the year in classrooms all over the city of Edmonton. Kind donations greatly help continue showing kids how awesome science can be.
