Science World Class Bursary

Do you have a class in grades K–12 that you would like to receive an online program or bring on a field trip to Science World? Do you need financial assistance to make it happen? Thanks to support from Science World’s Science of Cocktails, we can help! Science World is delighted to offer bursaries for underserved schools.

How the Class Bursary Works

Requirements

  • Grade K-12 classes in BC ministry-funded schools
  • Classes with demonstrable need for financial assistance
  • The applicant will need to describe how the students’ learning will be extended beyond the field trip and how it is connected to school or district goals and/or community resources.

Feedback from Applicants

"For some students this will be the first time experiencing the wonders of Science World. We believe it is important for students to take their learning outside the classroom and to make new discoveries around their community." - Bursary Recipient

"This field trip will be an unforgettable learning experience for our students. Our students are excited at the prospect of being able to engage in the interactive displays, feature exhibitions and live science demonstrations that are not available in the context of the school classroom. As we are an inner-city school, many of our students may not have the opportunity to attend such an enriching educational experience outside of school." - Bursary Recipient

“Most of our students haven’t been to Science World, and ask at the start of every year if they will be given the opportunity to visit. As an educator, we would hate for financial adversity to prevent  them from opportunities that are out there.” - Bursary Recipient
