Celebrate the science happening every day in your community.
A Community Science Celebration is a one-day, free event that brings the community together and showcases the educational opportunities, local industries, government agencies, schools and community organizations involved in STEAM fields (science technology, engineering, art and design, and math).
This event is for the community and encourages people of all ages to participate in activities, engage with community organizations and discover more about the cool science that’s happening right there in their own community. It also illustrates the value of science education and encourages students to consider science and technology career options.
Community Science Celebrations run in conjunction with the On The Road program that engages students in elementary schools across the province with curriculum-linked, interactive science shows. The Community Science Celebration expands on the importance of STEAM education to families and the community at large through science shows, table activities and interactive booths with local and provincial exhibitors that provide information and resources tailored to the community.
Community Science Celebrations are a great way to discover how science, technology and innovation have such a positive impact on that region’s economy.
Science World typically hosts six to eight Community Science Celebrations in remote and/or underserved communities across BC, every year. Over 6,000 people attended these events, in 2018.
Through Community Science Celebrations, Science World hopes to foster relationships with community organizations and build community capacity for ongoing science-related activities.
